"I watched the instructional praise dance video "Glorious" and was so encouraged to see
exciting, vibrant, and relevant Christian dance choreography in wonderful costumes. Your
dance ministry is a vital witness for this age - your brilliant work shows us dance
routine without offensive movements and with your clothes on.
I teach on a university campus--I see lots of scary dancing!!"
Wendy McDougall, Trinity Dance Corps, Victoria BC, Canada
"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."
Tina Keith, Norwich Worship Center, Norwich, CT
"The reason I am writing is that you and your instructional praise dance video
"Shackles" came to
us just in time. We offer programs to girls in prison and one of the workshops
we share with them is sign/movement to Christian contemporary music. We have had
this song in our files for over a year and without a knowledge of how to bring
it to life, we were at a loss... I received your dance video yesterday. Not only do you bring
worship to hip hop dance, you do it with modesty, fun and so much more. While I am on
the down side of 55, I found that I could learn most of the moves easily."
"Thank you so much for the wonderful instructional praise dance video "Glorious"! I taught
this dance routine to
a group of young people at our church who are excellent dancers and when we
performed it at an outreach evening it went down a storm!!!"
Tracy Greenhough, Bolton, United Kingdom
"I have been meaning to tell you that I took "Here
I Am" to Africa with me this summer, and danced it as a solo at 3
different churches that we were ministering to. They loved it. Thank
you so much for the choreography in that song."
Diana Beall, First Baptist Laurel, MD
"My dance team at church received and began working on
praise dance "Shackles" 2 weeks ago. Amazingly, we only have the bridge left to
learn in just two sessions. Dawn is a marvelous teacher and choreographer and we are so excited to bring
this new dance choreography of "Shackles" to our church family!"
Janet Yarbrough, DCC, Ridgecrest, CA
"I recently bought your instructional praise dance video "Glorious"
and I love
it. I was so encouraged. I am a busy homeschooling mother of 3 and I lead a
dance ministry at our church. It is so wonderful to have this whole dance
routine ready for me to teach. Great job on everything. My
teens in our dance ministry love it and so do I."

"I just wanted to write to you and thank you for your instructional praise dance videos -
"Glorious" and "Shackles". We are teaching these dance routines to about 35 or so people and going out and worshiping on the streets with them as outreach. We love the hip hop dance style and wish you were going to choreograph more like it so we can keep learning!"

director of a 50 members dance team which dance every Sunday morning service. We
are always looking for new songs and dance routines, so when I came across your

team really enjoyed both DVDs. Our dancers range in age from 12 to 16 and 17

now I have a way to bring back the love of dancing with all my church friends."

"I love the choreography style and the instructional portion
is wonderful as always. Your DVDs are by far the best Christian instructional
dance videos around. Being an instructor for 16 years now and only
been introduced to this style for 5 years, it's so nice to have resource
material where people actually know how to teach dance choreography and not just
perform it. Even my friends that are beginners can grasp on to it. Keep up the

steps, so we actually are almost finished. This is such an incredible dance ministry.
It is wonderful to see unbelievers working (dancing) with believers using
Christian music. I can really see God's hand in all that we are doing. I praise God for using your talent He has given you to reach others."

LaMar Boschman, Dean of the International Worship Institute & www.WorshipInstitute.com
"Shackles" is a tremendous 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."

Dr. Pamela Rutherford Hardy, National Co-Coordinator of Christian Dance Fellowship USA, Dance Ministry Coordinator for the National Baptist Congress
"Give your group a chance to explore blending current dance styles. With the lyrical hip-hop fusion in the
Here I Am praise dance video, once again, Worship Steps has produced a compelling contemporary piece. Beginner to Intermediate dancers will find enjoyable challenge in mastering the clean timing and lines which make this dance a success. Dancers and audience, alike, are drawn into an experience of total heart devotion to Jesus. This dual-style dancework 'works'!"

"The Only Getting Started instructional praise dance video gives you the opportunity to express worship towards God in a fun and theatrical way. Each move is demonstrated and broken down to easily understand the choreography. Enjoy the power of dance as you experience "worship steps".

"Only Getting Started is a fun, energetic praise dance that celebrates the thrill of an ever-growing relationship with Christ. The young and the young-at-heart are going to love this dance!""
Treasure of Jesus DVD proves that anyone at any age, with a heart of
worship, can dance before our Lord. Dawn's exceptionally definitive teaching
style is so easy to follow, that all skill levels can benefit from this
demonstration. The simplistic background and 'view from behind, while watching
the front in the mirror' camera angle makes all the parts of the dance very
'doable' and reproducible. It was nice to see not only the entire dance done in
costume, but also to see the dance being broken down into its various
components. Watching the instruction and then viewing that part done to the
music was very helpful and inspiring. I would recommend this video to anyone who
wants to learn a lovely worship dance and I give it a two thumbs up!"
Pastor Lynn M. Hayden, Dancing For Him
"The content serves
as proof: There is treasure in earthen vessels! The passion and genuine
relationship with Jesus is evident throughout this entire dance. Both
the seasoned dancer and the beginner can benefit from the instruction and Divine

to produce a lasting impact on both the dancer and the observer alike. Move
into a deeper experience with Him, as you present your treasure in this offering
of movement unto the Lord."

"I am Linda a dance teacher of 24years with 2 small
town studios. After having a difficult summer camp with trying to find
appropriate music for classes, I made the decision, to change over to using all
praise and Christian music for classes starting with the first day of fall
classes. I ordered "Glorious" and
"I Need Thee". When I got
the DVDs, I was so excited! I enjoyed the music, and the choreography. I
was pretty scared to approach my teen aged students with the change in music and
theme for this year. I did not want to lose students. Long story short, we are
in our 2nd month of fall classes, and my students LOVE the music; they fell in
love with "Glorious" the first day
they heard the song and now sing along while we are doing your dance
choreography to it!"

"I just wanted to thank you for the videos you have
produced recently. I started our dance team and we recently had the first ever
youth crusade for our church, which was wonderful. Over 250 attended and that is

Only Getting Stated, and Sovereign. I just wanted to say
thanks for devoting your time to dancing and choreographing dances for those who
wish to dance for our Lord. You are a blessing."

videos, they are excellent! Your instructions are easy to follow and
you do such a wonderful job of ministering as you instruct. After we did
Sovereign, the response was wonderful, to say the least. I was asked to
lead worship arts at our church, In June we ordered "Shackles" and
performed it last Sunday. There is so much excitement in our church regarding
dancing for the Lord and I wanted you to know the part you and your videos
played in accomplishing that. God used your ministry to launch ours (We
are working on bringing dance to our rural community this coming fall) and
I wanted you to know about it."

"First off, I would like to say Thank
you!!!! Your DVDs are awesome. I really appreciate your energy and
devotion to glorify God. We (our church) ordered all of the videos in
April. As this was a completely new ministry to the church, we took our
time. I approached a couple other ladies to start out with one dance.
I picked Shackles as it is a favorite of our
Pastor. Anyway, with our busy schedule, it took us about 6 weeks to be
ready and we performed for our Harvest Celebration this October. It was a
huge success and people are coming out of the woodwork to dance with us!!!!"
"First of all, I just want to thank you for your
worship dance ministry. I discovered it through my sister. We both
do some choreography for our churches and I was looking for some hip-hop style
material. You were the answer to my prayers! We presented "Shackles"
last year at our Worship Expo in Laurel, Maryland. It was a huge success!!
We are currently beginning work on "Glorious"
and we have started a junior dance group that will be working on "Sovereign".
Again, thank you so much for your ministry."

"I am the director of "Praise in Motion" at
First Presbyterian Church in Lakeland, Florida. Liturgical dance is fairly
new at our church, and we have slowly but prayerfully injected it into our
worship, particularly on special occasions. I have a group of about 10
dancers ranging in age from 10 to 40, all with differing levels of dance
training, if any at all. I ran across your DVD Sovereign.
The video was easy to follow and the dance was fun, even for someone pushing 40,
like me. We got to perform the dance before about 2,000 people and got a
standing ovation. I just wanted to write you and tell you how thrilled I was.
Thank you so much for your special gift and your heart for worshipping God in
new and awesome ways!"
Michelle Holseth, First Presbyterian Church,
"I want you to know that as a "new" dance
team leader, I had no idea what I was doing. When I was in the "World"
I loved to dance at clubs etc. but, since then I really haven't done anything
like this soooo, I had no idea where to turn. Long story short, I ended up
searching the internet for something and came across your site etc. I was soooo
very relieved to find something "hip" and "new" for the
teens to do. I was also relieved that there is someone out there
that has the passion that you have and the giftings / anointing to do what you
do.... I know it's helping our small team A LOT and I KNOW God is going to
use this dance in a mighty way. Thank you for the time, money,
effort and obedience to Gods call to make these videos as it's helping so
many of us! I pray God continues to give you inspiration and instruction
and "WORSHIP STEPS" so that more can benefit from your incredible and
anointed ministry! I pray all the best for you and your ministry and
PLEASE continue doing what you're doing... I can't wait for your next video!!"
