Reverent Rhythms is a 501(c)3 non profit with the state of Colorado. Reverent Rhythms has a professional modern dance company, a school of the arts and a variety of community programming. Reverent Rhythms provides professional performing arts in an encouraging and uplifting environment. 

Professional Company

Reverent Rhythms currently employs five professional dancers who rehearse and train throughout the week, dedicating themselves to showcasing excellence in the performing arts for God’s glory. 2021 provided us the opportunity to tour for the first time! In June, our professional company packed  and loaded a 15 passenger van, embarking on a three-week tour. This three-week tour took us all the way from Grand Junction Colorado to the upper peninsula of Michigan. We  performed our production of STORMS & GLORY, taught summer intensives, classes, and workshops as we witnessed God moving in miraculous ways through the performing arts. The company continues to perform locally throughout the fall and spring months and will go on tour again come the summer of 2022 with our newest production LIBERATION. It is through our professional company’s productions that we see the Spirit of God moving in radical ways, interrupting the audience in order to transform their hearts as they experience the love of Christ. 

 

School of The Arts

We continue to provide excellence in performing arts education at Reverent Rhythms through our school of the arts, with approximately 34 classes a week in various styles including: ballet, jazz, hip hop, musical theater, acrobatics, tap, contemporary and  worship dance. We currently have 100 students taking weekly classes ages 18 months to 60+ years old. We have approximately 30 students, both kids and adults, who are recipients of our New Generation Scholarship program. This scholarship program makes it possible for families in need to receive excellence in performing arts education in an encouraging and uplifting environment. We are allocating $20,600 in tuition scholarships from August 2021 to May 2022. These scholarships are made up of full and partial tuition and work-trade scholarships. Reverent Rhythms school of the arts continues to produce two student productions each school year, one in the fall and one one the spring. We are continually blown away by our students and their families. We have witnessed God moving in miraculous ways through performing arts classes and our student productions. Our students at Reverent Rhythms school of the arts are flourishing, not only in their dance technique and performance, but also emotionally, mentally and spiritually. We are truly seeing the impact in coming alongside families to encourage, support,  and foster relationships through the performing arts. 

 

Community Outreach and Programming

Reverent Rhythms continues to serve our community in Grand Junction and surrounding areas through the performing arts and various community programming. In 2021, we began partnering with 970 Church in providing dance education to students at Clifton Elementary through an afterschool program. We continued to serve the senior residents at Hilltop at The Commons through our seated dance classes. We began serving youth at the Grand Valley City Youth Center (the juvenile correctional facility for the entire western slope) through bi-weekly dance classes at their facility. Reverent Rhythms also began teaching all of the dance classes at the Fruita Colorado Community Center in 2021. These community programs listed above  make up approximately 14 classes a week in addition to the 34 school of the arts classes we run each week. These programs are at the center of our mission to provide excellence in performing arts education to marginalized demographics in order to demonstrate the love of Christ.
