ORNATE Dance Theatre: Inspire. Empower. Create.

Why We Dance

We believe that dance is a powerful way to communicate. Dance is a universal language that surpasses cultural barriers, languages, generations, and demographics. All can understand and relate to what is shared through the art of movement.

Who We Are & What We Believe 

ORNATE Dance Theatre is a Pre-Professional Training program for young adults who are passionate about growing in their creative ability while reaching the hearts of people through the medium of dance. 

We operate under the covering of Cavod Performing Arts, which is a 501c3 non-profit organization. 

Dance artists commit nine months to intense dance training in various styles of dance and discipleship in order to be well equipped to go out into the world with the intention of sharing the love of Jesus.

  • Providing networking opportunities and the chance to train with well-known teachers and choreographers.
  • Creating a space for young artists adults to cultivate practical life skills in addition to their artistic training.
  • Travel opportunities for those who are mission-minded.
  • Multiple performance opportunities in and out of state.

We believe that the one true Creator God longs to have a personal relationship with each person. We believe Jesus is the Son of God, who came to take our place and make the ultimate sacrifice in order that we may live fully alive! We believe the Holy Spirit resides in the hearts of those who have put their faith in Christ and that believers have access to the giftings given by the Spirit. We believe that the Great Commision is just as powerful today as it was in biblical times and we strive to share the love of Jesus everywhere we go!

How Can We Serve You?

Partner with Your Creative Team

Do you have a special service or event coming up where adding the element of dance would empower your team? We can curate dances to music of your choice to help your vision come to life!

Worship Dance Workshops:

One of our biggest passions is to watch people experience freedom through movement. We are flexible in where these workshops are held and would like to discuss the needs of your team in order to create a workshop specifically for your team. These workshops can vary from being upbeat and exercise focused to meditative and driven by scripture. Our goal is to create a class that is achievable by all where attendees leave feeling encouraged and knowing that they had an encounter with the Holy Spirit.

Local and International Outreach

Do you know of a local or international ministry that would enjoy having access to the performing arts, but currently doesn’t? It would be our honor to bring an inspiring performance or class to those who may not be able to attend a live show or dance class. Some examples of this may be:

  • retirement communities
  • homeless communities
  • orphanages
  • women’s shelters
  • prisons
  • hospitals
  • schools
