Two Tracks of Training:

This program offers two tracks of education in the study of the ministry of dance.  Track One is a certificate program. Upon completion of all your assignments and projects, you will be awarded a certificate of completion of the Na’thar Dance Ministry Online Dance Intensive.

Upon completion of the certificate program, you will be expected to serve as a volunteer at a NDM conference and you will also be expected to mentor new students.

Track Two is the licensure program/master certificate program.  This is more of a leadership track.  In this program, you will be required to attend a Na’thar Dance Ministry conference and teach a class or a segment of a dance class at that conference.  This will develop your teaching and training skills as a minister of dance.  This track also has three additional months of a licensure internship with some advanced additional assignments.  

This track is based on establishing a covenant relationship with Na’thar Dance Ministries, with a deeper commitment to the ministry and upholding the vision of Na’thar Dance Ministries.  You will, however, grow in the areas of leadership, spiritual maturity as well as your ability to minister the heart of the Father as a dance minister.  All assignments must be met at a satisfactory level to receive a license.  The licensure/master certificate program will begin in June and run through August.  There will be an application to complete as well as a short interview for the 3 month mentoring program.  Payment for the program is an additional $100.00, that is due April 15, 2018.  Upon acceptance, this program you will be required to teach a small segment of a class during the graduation conference to meet requirements for this program.

Upon completion of the licensure program, you will be expected to serve as a volunteer at a NDM conference, mentor a new student and/or teach a class or a segment of a class at a NDM conference or online.

Because you have committed to learn and mature as a minister of dance, it is expected that all assignments are thoroughly done with a spirit of excellence.  It is not advisable to delay completing assignments due to the commitment it requires to thoroughly complete them and the amount of assignments you will have per month.  Each assignment will require time to complete, thought-out answers and essays, and quality video uploads.
