Group & Individual Classes / Mentoring Program

Zion’s Daughters Dance Ensemble, Inc. ® (Zion’s Dtrs Inc.) is a Faith based community outreach dance organization established in 2009.  This ministry was called into existence by God and given as a vision to Minister Marjorie B. Gorham-Jones. In the spring of 2012, Mrs. Chari Christie joined the team as Partner/Executive Assistant and

Mrs. Monica Cole as Financial Officer.  The Zion’s Dtrs Inc. Family includes our Levels I, II, III, Mime, Little Angels

of Praise, Son of Zion and our Women of Purpose Adult Dancers.  The educational component of our liturgical

dance program uses various genres of dance techniques (African, Ballet, Hip-Hop, Jazz and Modern) to assist

our members in using their entire bodies allowing them to worship at a higher level.

Each dancer is taught that through every piece of choreography, the Holy Spirit should move as they use their gifts and talents to serve others while God is being praised.  Our dancers receive biblical instruction and spiritual teachings, with a focus on “Reaching Out,” “Lifting Up,” and “Holding On” to God and His Kingdom.  The gift of dance and experience of worship is nurtured and developed in our dancers to empower them as they blossom into self-sufficient, confident people; while impacting the community through the art of dance, enhancing the church body, and enriching God’s Kingdom. 

The Circle of Sisters Mentoring Program was established in 2014.  This faith based program is under the umbrella of Zion’s Dtrs Inc. where the goal is to develop a sisterhood for members whose ages range from 6 - 22 years old.  The program seeks to enhance personal development and be a supportive service to assist members in overcoming challenges.  Our goal is to equip them to become self-sufficient, positive, and productive individuals in their families, churches, schools, and communities.  Zion’s Daughters Dance Ensemble, Inc. ® is family oriented and was created out of love not only for our dancers but also their families.
