Jubliee Dance Company

Jubilee means: “A joyful time; a time or season of celebration!”  Jubilee Dance Company is an extension program and ministry of Dancing For Joy.  It is time to dance for joy and celebrate who God created us to be as we move together to bless our Maker.  

The Jubilee Dance Company is made up of 4 groups of 6 to 10 dancers each; the Junior group, Intermediate group, Senior group, and Principal group.  Each group participates in increased training in technique, performance, choreography, and professionalism in order to dance for others in the broader community.  

Together we reclaim and encourage dance as a venue for enriching our lives, blessing others, and praising God.

Achieving that mission

  • We are non-competitive yet professional.
  • Our focus is to reclaim the art of dance in the Pacific Northwest, WA, Whatcom county, and Bellingham for the glory of God.
  • We provide a healthy and safe outlet for young dancers to expand strengths, work on weaknesses, and build confidence in a loving and encouraging environment.
  • We encourage opportunities for technical excellence and personal growth that take us outside the studio walls and into the world we live in.
  • We maintain a high standard of commitment to rehearsal and technique classes.
  • We have team building times, devotions, and prayer times.
  • We use choreography, music, and costumes that are appropriate.
  • We place an emphasis on using dance as a way to serve God and others.
  • We will divide company members up by age, style, ability levels, years in the company, and availability to foster growth through different dance experiences. Some members may be asked to participate with multiple groups throughout a school year and/or in specific dances.  We may also have understudies for different dance works. 
  • Veteran company members have increased opportunity to choreograph, perform, be team leaders, judicators, camp counselors, and have solos etc…
