Online Training Course


The Dance Ministry Manual

Why is this an online course?

As we know Dance Ministry workshops are typically offered in a physical location, and require participants to prepare in a number of ways. For instance, participants may have to take a day off work (which is generally financially impacting), find a sitter for small children, absorb travel and lodging expenses, gain the buy-in of their teammates to invest and attend as a group, and  take time away from their families. Because this course is online, you don't have to make any special preparations or be overwhelmed by various out-of-pocket costs; you are able to take it at your own pace, and you can revisit modules as you need to.  Go ahead and enroll here.


Wouldn't it be better if I attended the workshop in person?

Colleges and universities around the world now offer online degree programs. We offer you that same convenience, without the exorbitant cost of college tuition! What you will find is different about this workshop is, it positions YOU as the developmental leader for your own ministry. As you strive to bring your team into a place of excellence, it strengthens your leadership to provide biblically-sound and quality development. Be empowered to take the lead on your team's development; the knowledge that you will gain in the course simply does not require your physical presence. Go ahead and enroll here.


Shouldn't part of the workshop include exercises or actual dancing?

While we have built in bonus modules and videos to fulfill a dancer's need for movement, many ministries are solely built on movement and give little to no thought to solid foundational practices that, if applied, would take the ministry to a greater level of excellence. The result of that is what many dance leaders express as their greatest frustrations: less-than-committed members, dancers who display no passion for what they are doing, and a leader is who frustrated in how to motivate and grow the team. Go ahead and enroll here. 


How will I know this material will be helpful to me?

We have over 20 years of Dance Ministry experience and have facilitated many, many workshops. One of the things we have ministries do at the beginning of each workshop is to share their frustrations and/or what they'd like to see improved in their ministries.  We've collected those responses and they are pretty consistent regardless of the dance ministry or its size. We've been careful to include solutions to the barriers very frequently communicated across dance ministries. Go ahead and enroll here.


Most workshops that I've seen cost about $20 or $30. Why is this one $97?

Typical workshops do have a price point hovering around the $20 - $40 dollar range, however, that cost is generally per person. When that cost is multiplied by the average number of people in a dance ministry, the dollars spent is nearly equal. What you DON'T get in the typical workshop is the opportunity to facilitate material to your own team, and develop your own team. This course is for the LEADER in you. Even if the current size of your team is only 3-4 participants, the knowledge that you will gain will help you to solidify your current team, and better equip you to accept and properly orientate new team members when you decide to expand. Additionally, we've packed a tremendous amount of valuable information into our 297-page manual (separate and optional purchase). You won't walk away with just a few handouts, that end up stuffed between the seats in your car. Your passion for your ministry is well worth the investment.  Go ahead and enroll here.


Do you offer a payment plan?

Yes we do!  Just scroll to the bottom of the Enrollment page and click on the Payment Plan option to have the tuition split into six equal payments. 


Suppose I can't finish the class. Can I get a refund?

Keep in mind that you are able to take the class at your own pace, so there is no way for you to fall behind or not finish. If you need to take a break, do that, but you will be able to come back to it when you're ready. As you grow in your personal commitment to your ministry and your team, you will be inspired to complete every single module, and share those learnings with your team. If you would still like to request a refund, you must do so in writing (via email to info@thedanceministrymanual.com) no later than 7 days after the course begins, along with copies of all completed course work from week one. 



Where can I order the hardcopy of the Leader's Guide or Participant's Workbooks?
They both are available at Amazon.com


Couldn't I just make copies of one of the workbooks to give to my other team members? 

Well, technically, you could do that, but we pray that you have a greater sense of integrity and conviction as not to copy the workbooks, as all the material is copyrighted. Additionally, the pride you take in building an excellent ministry will be reflected when you go to minister. The workbooks are so incredibly awesome, you (and your team members) will want to have their very own, bound, full-color copy. Finally, (in our best preaching voice) we'd like you to turn in your Bible to Exodus 20:15. When you have it, say amen, and we shall read it in unison. As Creflo Dollar would say, "Ready? Read!" - "Thou shalt not steal." Please read our Terms of Use for more details. 



Is enrolling and ordering from your site secure?

Absolutely! We wouldn't have it any other way. Go ahead and enroll here.



Is my church able to pay for the course on my behalf?

We will accept any valid credit card payment; just be sure to enter the correct card holder's name in the payment section of the enrollment form. 



I am so excited and ready to take my ministry to the next level! Where can I sign up?
