I went and saw them perform last night. I am not very good at this review thing , but I will give it a shot.<P> The First part of the Program which was called "Give me Jesus" I liked. I did not like how it started out but as it progressed I liked. It was all done on flat. My fav. part of that was Kumbaya. It was the first and last thing in this peice they performed ,but both times it was diffrent and the last time was just amazing. Up bet and energizing. I just loved it!<P> Now to the best part.......<P> After the intermission was "Deliver Us!". This was the most breathe taking ,soul enriching peice. The music was from the Prince of Egypt and the choreography was done by Jiri Sebastian Voborsky who was also the lead male dancer.<P> He was amazing. He has a smile that your either born with or your not. Know what I mean? His dancing was amazing. He,like all the dancers,glowed with a love of God. I was truly touched.<P> After seeing this,Dancing for this Company seems like something I would love to do. They are not only dancing,well might I add,They are dancing for The Lord.<P> Well now that I'm done with that! If any of y'all have ever seen them perform I would love to hear what you think.<p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited February 24, 2002).]

I saw them Perform in Citrus Heights. The company has about 14 Members but there is a school with 500 students. They have Trainees and Apprentices. The company started in 82' I belive.

Sounds ghastly...saw Kathy on the Dance for Gold show. It was embarrassing - I wonder how this would sell outside the Bible Belt. Of course, I rather prefer tutus and crowns, Billy Forsythe and Hans Van Manen. Warra ya gonna do...

If they've got the Hail Mary pass in football, can the Our Father triple pirouette be far behind...?
