America’s Best Praise Dance Showcase
F.L.A.V.A. Dance, LLC, launches a search for Praise Dancers across America who are longing for an opportunity to share their gift of praise dance! On Saturday, June 23, 2012 and Saturday July 7, 2012 hundreds of praise dancers will descend on the campus of Vanderbilt University and The University of Louisville for one purpose—to give God the glory at America’s Best Praise Dance Showcase (“ABPD”). Registration is limited to the first 23 soloist/teams, starting February 1, 2012 through May 21, 2012 so don’t delay!
Praise Dance is stronger than ever with thousands of young praise dancers and teams all over America, worshipping and praising to some of the most beloved Christian music. Praise Dance anoints and inspires people of all ages to experience praise at a higher level while utilizing their gifts and talents. ABPD is guaranteed to be one of America’s most anticipated showcase events of 2012.
ABPD is the original premier praise dance showcase and competition which partners with colleges and universities across all the United States to reinforce the importance of continuing education. We are committed to offering the highest quality praise dance experience to every participant. ABPD strives to unite, mentor and develop participating dancers, while encouraging them to explore and apply the many styles of dance to their praise dance experience. ABPD is a three day event that inspires and promotes faith based values. This three day Event is jam packed with a reception, workshops, forums, a showcase and an awards program. It is not our goal at America’s Best Praise Dance to judge the level of any one’s praise, because we understand that praise is personal between the individual and God. Our goal is to give our youth a positive outlet, where they can meet other young Christian from all over our nation, share their stories and struggles, receive encouragement, positive spiritual reinforcement and display their talents and gifts while glorifying God.
It is our belief that we must provide as many positive alternative outlets for our youth as possible as we fight today’s media driven definition of who they to become as dancers. Our youth need wholesome dance opportunities, since our media primarily presents dance in a very sexual, vulgar and negative light (music videos). America’s Best Praise Dance brings a positive light to dance in a public forum were giving honor and praise to God is the ultimate goal. ABPD is not just a Showcase, it is a Ministry Event designed to set a new standard for the way the world has defined dance and dancers. We are turning the tide and taking the art form of pure dance back by force!
