The MarriageDance workshop combines introductory-level dance instruction with a scriptural study on marriage. This combination results in a fun, effective and multi-dimensional learning experience. Applicable to church, Bible study, small group and community group settings, the workshop can be offered as a weekend retreat (Friday night, Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon) or a series of five to six weeknight sessions.
Couples learning to dance together in the context of our scriptural study on marriage grow in unity and partnership, experiencing more of God’s good intentions for marriage – including adventure, intimacy and joy.
More than a “fun thing to do,” the MarriageDance workshop affirms men and women as equal and complementary partners created for individual roles.
Dancing together provides an experience of connection, communication and cooperation described in the relationship principles of scripture, resulting in practical applications for life.
