Information

If you have been wondering "Do I need to have previous dance experience to attend Summer Series?" Look no further! I have the answer for you! 

You don't! And guess what! This track was created for you! 

The Introductory Track is for the mover who once danced many years ago, just started dancing a couple years ago, or perhaps has never even stepped foot into a dance studio but feels an invitation from the Lord and simply wants to say "Yes!" 

With an open age range and a skill level of beginner to intermediate, Open Level is designed to give the mover a taste of the technical foundations of various styles of dance including ballet, modern, contemporary and hip hop, while focusing on the Father's design for dance as a part of intercession and worship. 

If you feel the tug on your heart to come, and have not been sure there would be place for you here, do not hesitate! Register today and join us! You belong here! 

Zion Dance Project believes there will be a dance revival in the church  and we will see the Bride dance again!

FAQs

FAQs

What do I wear? Is there a dress code? Hair requirements? Shoes? 

At Summer Series we do not have a dress code.

For the Introductory Track, we simply advise you to bring clothes that you feel confident and comfortable moving in. Other than bringing tennis shoes, there are no other shoe requirements. If you have dance experience and have dance shoes such as jazz shoes or ballet shoes feel free to bring them for class! 

For hair, we just ask that hair is out of face for all classes and rehearsals.  

What do I need to bring with me? 

Aside from clothes and daily necessities for class and rehearsal, you will also need to pack: 

Flesh Tone Undergarments - These will be used under your costume for the Summer Series Concert

Hair & Makeup Supplies for Performance Weekend 

Foam Rollers, Massage Balls and other Body Care Needs

Journal & Bible for Speaker Sessions 

Clothes for Gatherings Outside the Studio  

Flags and Worship Tools

*A final packing list will be sent to all participating dancers a month prior to the start of the program.

How long is the dance day? Am I gonna dance a lot? Will I have rest days? 

As a part of the Introduction Program, you will spend 3.5 hours in the studio dancing daily! After completing classes and rehearsals, we will have 3 hours together in impartation and worship bringing the program to approximately a 6.5-7 hour day! 

Please reference the daily schedule outline above. There will be special event days where the schedule is rearranged.

The two and half weeks will be intense, but there will be time to fellowship and build community with other Summer Series Participants! On "off days", there may be suggestions of things to do in the Dallas area, as well as time allotted for dancers to get to hang out together and continue to build community.  

*The outline for the full two and a half weeks schedule will be sent to all participating dancers a month prior to the start of the program.

Does ZDP provide housing? 

Unfortunately at this time ZDP is unable to provide housing for Summer Series participants. If you have friends or family 

If you are interested in finding an Air BnB or Hotel to share with other Series Dancers, email ziondanceproject@gmail.com to get info about the ZDP Housing Facebook group to connect with other participants who will be joining us this summer! 

Do I need access to a car? Is public transit an option? 

This is a hard question to give a definite answer to. If you are staying farther away from the studio location then yes you will need access to a car or have a system of carpooling in place. Unfortunately Dallas public transit is not reliable. 

If you plan to stay close to the studio, you may or may not need a car. There are two hotels right next to the studio if needed. 

Do you have to be a Christian to attend Summer Series?

No. Everyone is welcome to the table! During Summer Series we set a table for all to come and feast on the joy and freedom that shines from Zion. So if you are looking for a cultural/spiritual exchange, this may be for you! Come and join us at the table!
