Specialized Training for Dance Ministers

ENROLLMENT FOR July will open on June 13, 2022


The Liturgical Dance Studies (LDS) Certificate Program is an instructor-led online learning program specifically created to educate dance ministers of all ages and beginner technique levels in the fundamentals of liturgical dance ministry and dance basics. We have recently revised this program to meet the current needs of Liturgical Dancers and have included an Introduction to Ballet & Modern Session as well as an Introduction to Conditioning & Flexibility.  Within two months, students will receive a certificate in Liturgical Dance Studies all from the convenience of their home.  Our online platform is easily accessible from any computer, laptop, or mobile device.  The program consists of 6-sections over the span of 6-weeks.

"The LDS Program helped me in understanding the gifting of dance as a ministry. I was able to read the scriptures that were related to dance and those who expressed dance in a celebratory type of worship. I learned that dance also expresses the heart of God through visual movement. The importance of preparing your temple before ministering and covering the ministry through prayer. The use of instruments (flags, streamers, fabric, tambourine, etc.) as a weapon during a dance and why it is being used; also, what they may represent in scripture to get a clear understanding. Overall the class was fabulous and informative."  Cathryn Stamps

"I was truly blessed , the theory and practical took me to new heights in my spiritual life. My life will never be the same. Thank you!" I am now able to step up to the God given task of ministering at my church . Helping young people to do the same. This is a dream come through .

"This dance program has given me a deeper understanding of my call to dance, the meaning of dance and why I dance. The live video sessions were electric and engaging, dance in the word of God was revealed. In all this was a wonderful experience."  Marita Jardine

"The LDS program provided so many useful principles and tips that will take my dance to the next level! I tremendously enjoyed the Facebook live sessions and the interactions with Minister Kimberly Brown-Phillips and my classmates. It was very encouraging as we realized that we're all at different levels but dancing to the glory of the same God. I highly recommend the LDS program to all liturgical dancers, regardless of their background. It will help to propel you and your dance ministry to another level. It was a blessing!! Thanks Kimberly Brown-Phillips and CCD!!"  Susanne Palmer​

“All or Nothing,” was the firm yet gentle words from my Heavenly Father at the closing of 2018! I knew that it was time to enter into a new season filled with new levels and new dimensions. The new LDS Course under CCD’s training and education has had a wonderful impact in assisting me as I continue to dance into the manifestation of what God has spoken. The Instructor is very passionate as well as filled with an anointing to impart knowledge and revelation of the Liturgical Dance Ministry experience. I plan to further my dance ministry education with CCD in the future! "  Denise Cook-Godfrey​
