A Shared Vision

Statement of Faith

Our aim is to follow the life and teachings of Jesus as we confront culturally relevant topics that we believe are near to the heart of God. Our most performed works advocate for the oppressed on issues such as: The Refugee Crisis, Climate Change, and Mental Illness.

Most of us would agree on the core values of faith as stated in the Nicene Creed. Some are still wrestling with a couple of lines, and that is okay! We believe that all of us belong as we stay open to God and allow His spirit to guide us in love.

We appreciate our differences and find common ground in scripture and through our compassion for the marginalized and oppressed in our communities. We believe that all people are made in the image and likeness of God.

We celebrate our diverse theological perspectives. Some of us are grateful to find a place where we are able to combine our dance with our faith. Some of us have been hurt very badly by churches. Some are giving the idea of church a chance by dancing with us. Some are still searching for answers. We are all willing to ask the tough questions as we engage our faith.

Our aim is to be a safe, healing, spiritual space where art and faith can flourish.
