"Shackles" is a tremendous
hip hop praise dance! It is fun, appropriate for all ages,
and mostly - an incredible dance of warfare! Upon teaching to dancers at my school, a unanimous decision was made to close our school
recital with it in 2003. We still have people requesting the dance, and even wanting to come learn it."
Gwendolyn Johnson Delaney, Director of Tennessee Conservatory
of Fine Arts and Ballet Gloria
"Dawn is just plain fun to watch! This
hip hop praise dance is engaging,
energetic, and expressive, while preserving lines of integrity and modesty. The practical
instruction makes this an excellent equipping tool. You gotta see it!"
Bob Sorge, author, www.oasishouse.net
one of the pioneers of the contemporary movement of dance and the Christian
faith, I applaud the efforts of those like Dawn whose well crafted and
heart-felt work in dance is rendered as a service and true ministry to the Body

I just wanted to thank you so much for hearing God and choreographing
"Shackles". It is such an awesome hip hop praise dance. Our youth just finished
learning this dance routine and we performed it for our church. It was awesome. We are now taking it out to
other churches and events. Our vision is to break the shackles off people and
bring them to know Jesus. I just want to thank you.
