Roots is an opportunity for dancers to deepen down into greater understanding of Christ-Centered expression through dance. Just as roots of a tree might spread and anchor the body the work of this company project spreads and anchors the body of Christ. Dancers participate in devotional activities in rehearsals and perform a variety of dance styles from classical ballet, contemporary, to hip-hop.
CREO’s three faith-based youth dance companies, Footprints, Roots, and The CREO DanceVERVE: Twin Cities are one in mission. Our mission is to give young people an opportunity to grow in faith and to express what they have learned through art & dance. Because we were created by God in excellence we, encourage our artists to create their work in excellence. “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.” Colossians 3:23
Christa Anderson-Hill is the creator and choreographer of The Companion: Ruth & Naomi’s Story, Esther: For Such a Time as This, A New Song, Enticed, The Tales and Tails of Folks and Fairies, The Bridegroom, and Wade Children
