Follow the leader

In this group series couples will be introduced to biblical principles of leading and following through learning to dance together. This group will be great for couples who want to spend more time growing in their relationship with each other as well as with Christ.  It meets for 7 weeks and participants will learn to dance the Rumba and the Waltz together.    The group is designed for married or engaged couples with little to no dance experience.  There is a $189 studio fee per couple that will cover the cost of the dance space as well as all study and group discussion material.  Studio Fee can be paid to Kalamazoo Ballroom Academy

God has placed on our hearts that there is a war on marriages.  Obviously in our culture, but also in the church body.  We believe God has called us to help the body of Christ through unifying marriages through dance.  We are very excited to share this class with others and excited to see where God is taking us and the body of Christ.

Class Structure

The series is broken down into 5 parts. 

Before lesson split group: 15 Minutes before the dance lessons starts, we will gather together in separate men and women groups to discuss the last lesson and to encourage each other.  We will assign a weekly prayer leader to open the group. 

Dance lesson: There will be 40 minutes of dance instruction and parable.  Pay attention the holy spirit might whisper to you through the lesson. 

Group discussion:  There will be a 15-30 minute discussion at the end of class where we will read a verse and answer some group questions. 

Homework:  There will be a few verses to look up throughout the week as well as some questions to ponder and pray about. 

Practice:  There is a weekly studio practice on Saturdays from 11:30am-12:30am where students bring food and gather together to practice dance steps.  This is a great time to encourage each other and get some practice in. 

The class meets for seven weeks.  If the teacher is sick or there is a snow day the class will continue at the same day and time for another week. 

Proverbs 11:14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.
