Companies

Lighthouse Dance Companies are for dancers who desire to use their gift of dance to reach the world and to set an example in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity. Our Company dancers are committed to growing in excellence through hard work and dedication. They have a heart for unity and teamwork. They are passionate about dance and love to serve others with their gift of dance through missions and outreach.  Lighthouse Dance company members consider dance to be a primary passion in their lives and a place where they find community and purpose.  Company coaches are committed to discipling, praying for, and encouraging the dancers in their care.

Our companies perform at various venues such as special events, churches, schools, nursing homes, community festivals, and dance mission and outreach trips.  Company dancers make up the core cast for our “Nativity”.   Companies perform and create their own choreography in our annual “Shine” Student Showcase.

Each company rehearses for 60 to 90 minutes each week. In addition to learning and rehearsing dances, company members will grow in their relationship with each other, and be encouraged and mentored by their coaches.
