Humble Beginnings… More than Praise Dancers. The precursor to Dance Levels was Divine Destiny’s Dance Ministry established in 2005. Divine Destiny’s Dance Ministry is a ministry under Revelation Knowledge Bible Church. In an effort to raise the standards and technical abilities of the dance members, weekly dance classes were put into place. The weekly classes turned into a program which offered additional classes to all members of Revelation Knowledge Bible Church. The program’s successful implementation gave rise to Dance Levels, formerly known as Divine Destiny’s Dance School. Divine Destiny’s Dance School was established 2009. Divine Destiny’s Dance School was a non-profit organization that offered free classes to the local community in a space donated by Revelation Knowledge Bible Church. Divine Destiny’s Dance obtained 501 (c3) status in 2012. In 2014 Divine Destiny’s Dance School changed its name to Dance Levels. Dance Levels is now embarking on taking steps to change the world through dance.

History

Dance Levels is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Dance Levels began in October 2009 creating opportunities to dance in the local community of Pinson, Alabama. Our first local event, Dance All Night, drew over 150 participants. We offered one hour classes of different dance styles taught by guest artist for one night. The event also featured guest musical artist and dance performances from Dance Levels’ company dancers. Dance Levels provides dance education in a space donated by Revelation Knowledge Bible Church in the spring and summer seasons. We offer dance classes to individuals 4-18 years of age. Our enrollment status, simply by word of mouth advertisement for the opening season was approximately 26 students. Dance Levels is now venturing into new phases of operation. We aim to offer dance classes year round, apparel,outreach programs, events, and dance space for the community. To accommodate these changes the company is making moves to occupy its own unique space.
