About Us

​The Christian Dance Boutique and More, along with the Royal Priesthood Christian Dance Academy, are part of the same divine vision. The Boutique, which started first in August of 1997, gave birth to the Dance Academy, a few months later. The goal of Christian Dance Boutique and More is to demonstrate to students how to make His praise glorious using the many creative tools, God has given us, from our bodies, to our garments and an assortment of colorful praise instruments. The Boutique and Dance Academy are being used by God to re-establish true, excellent worship back into the church. This is training ground for true worshippers. The Lord is preparing His troops, suiting them up for battle and moving them out to reclaim ground Satan has stolen. We are to train up prophets and priests to minister unto the Lord. The Lord said only those who are teachable, willing to be trained and determined to make a total surrender to him will be able to join this mighty army.

Mission Statement

Royal Priesthood Christian Dance Academy is a unique dance school that focuses on teaching people how to worship the Lord in spirit and truth through interpretive, sign, spontaneous, prophetic dance movement, drama and mime. Technique is important at Royal Priesthood, but it is secondary to having a heart of worship, which is the seed that gives birth to the anointing. We will show students how to live a lifestyle of worship and how that lifestyle is reflected in the dance as a priestly ministry unto the Lord.
