• Dance and Worship

    By collaborating with Turning Pointe School of Dance, students can earn a bachelors degree from Kuyper College, in which Bible, theology and general education courses are taken at Kuyper, and dance courses are taken on campus and at Turning Pointe Christian Dance Academy in nearby Holland, Michigan. This program is a training ground for dancers who desire to use their gifts in a worship ministry setting. Through this program, students are grounded in theology and biblical principles, and equipped to plan and lead biblically faithful and culturally relevant worship, with particular attention to the role that dance can play in ministry.


    Upon completion of the worship program, students will be able to:

    •  Display knowledge of the biblical and historical foundations of Christian worship, using them as a basis for worship planning.  
    • Demonstrate interpersonal communication and conflict management skills. 
    • Demonstrate the ability to wisely use the arts and technology in Christian Worship 
    • Demonstrate the proficiency to dance, choreograph, and instruct others in dance for worship settings.
