We believe God can use the performing arts, including dance, to reach the lost with His message of peace, hope, love and joy.
Christian Academy of Dance is a place where the joy of dance and community are celebrated. At CAD we seek to foster an environment in which students are lovingly challenged in their pursuit of artistic excellence and are nurtured along their path to maturity. Our highly qualified faculty and staff share in this vision for CAD’s students. When you join the CAD family, as a student or parent, it is our hope that you will not only discover a love for the creative art of dance, but that you will be inspired to continue on a lifelong journey of discovering a love for the One who created it. Come join us in the dance.
Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet exists to “love all and serve all” as the church embodied through the visible form of dance.

Ekklesia’s passionate performers, choreographers, and collaborators are committed to presenting innovative work that speaks to every audience member in an effort to heal our world. Ekklesia is committed to providing education and accessibility in the art of dance to the underserved in our community. Ekklesia’s goal is to foster an environment for our audiences and artists where genuine discussion of life and faith can flourish.
Ahavah is the Hebrew word for Love. This performance – like love – has been ever evolving over the past 12 years. The show gives a glimpse of the human heart and how God longs to connect with us in a real and intimate way. This show is unique in that each year there is always a new angle to see God’s love; a new lens if you will, to hopefully take us all on a journey into a deeper understanding of the unfathomable and mysterious love of our Creator.
DANCING TO END HUNGER
Since 2013, Ahavah has donated over $32,000 to the Shoreline Soup Kitchens and Pantries.
Matched by The Gowrie Group each year, these donations provided over 142,000 meals to our neighbors in need! Due to the high cost of food, recent cutbacks, and the rapidly growing need of our community for the meals provided by the SSKP, the SSKP increasingly relies on the income from fundraising events such as Ahavah. This partnership is a wonderful opportunity to meet the needs of hungry families in the Shoreline Community during the Christmas Season.
