Professional Christian Dance & Arts Organizations
This page highlight professionals dance companies, dancers and dance organizations, which like Ad Deum Dance Company, live, work and carry out their vocational and spiritual callings as professional artists who have placed their faith and hope in a living relationship with Jesus Christ and understand their place and positions as servant-artists called to engage and impact the world with relevant and redemptive creativity.
These artists flow in a natural fusion of their faith and artistic journeys. Simply stated, they are professional artists believing in the wholeness of the Lordship of Jesus Christ and what it means to live out their faith in the community of the arts to the glory of God and to the service of humanity.
These are not religious, liturgical, praise dance, or what might be considered as dance ministry based individuals or organizations. However, working as professional artists, they are clearly carrying out a "mission" and "artistic ministry" in a broader sense than how those terms might typically be understood.
It is our hope that you will be inspired and maybe even challenged by who they are and what they have been called to accomplish as they have responded to God’s unique call upon their lives.

Talk Dance Company
TALK’s mission is to create and perform dance works based on stories of human experience that inspire dialogue, engage an audience in professional dance performance and educate new audiences to contemporary dance.
It is my desire that the choreography presented by TALK Dance Co would unveil and engage our legacy of faith, but more central to my heart and crucial to my artistry is that it would inspire critical examination for those who’s journeys have not yet uncovered this gift.
