Boogie on Down


Another season of “So You Think You Can Dance” invades the homes of many across America. I think I would have to say this is my favorite show at the moment. This show is so awesome and gets me all hyped up! Amazing talent from all over audition for a spot each season. Some dancers are trained and others or not. This show stretches dancers in the area that you have to learn many different styles throughout the show. So if you are a born hip-hop dancer you may have to perform a jazz or contemporary piece… CRAZY!  It’s amazing to see how versatile the talents are that make it on the show.

The show was created by the former producers of American Idol. The judges are Mary Murphy, Nigel Lythgoe (whom personality echoes Simon from American Idol if not worse at times) and a special guest Judge. This week special guest judge is Wade Robson. He is the bomb choreographer! He has worked with artist such as: Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, N’SYNC, and Backstreet Boys. He was also the co-choreographer for the movie ” You Got Served”. The man has got mad talent.

Well unfortunately tonight two dancers will have to get eliminated…I’ll make sure to tune in.


Miming is the ability to be able to control and deliver the non-verbal language of telling a story by using only your body and facial expressions. Modern European mime began in the early 1700’s. The best known European mime artist is the phenomenal Marcel Marceau. He has portrayed many different characters, but his most famous is called “Bip”.

Today, this form of drama has swept churches across the nation in an amazing way. Who would have ever thought that ministry, through this form of art, would be embraced. We are talking totally non-traditional here. And as history has shown, things that are non-traditional have mountains to climb, simply because breaking “tradition” takes people out of their comfort zones. I am so thankful to be a part of a church that tries not to keep God in a box. What the ministry of mime has done is expand the horizons of the means by which we spread the Gospel. God uses what He sees fit to make His presence known in the land. An integral part of that picture is now mime.  Mime ministries bring the lyrics of Gospel songs to life through creative depiction with the use of expressive choreographed movement and dramatic storylines.  

This ministry is my heart. It’s life changing. Not only does it have an impact on the people God is using me to minister to but it is also inspiration to my own life. This is another way of how I express my love and passion for God. If you or someone you know would be interested in this form of ministry, I encourage you to get involved. It’s an incredible experience!
