• Learning discipline and lifeskills through dance
By Linda Green

The discipline of dance is the principle used by a troupe leader to show young girls that all of life is about discipline.
Three times a week the Anointed Angels of Christ practice their routines at White Oak Park and other venues. The troupe gives 48 young girls and a few young boys from McDuffie and Warren counties lessons about life, its struggles, its joys and how through discipline and dancing for God many things can be overcome.
Led by Evangelist Deborah Stevens, the name suggests that all of the members are God’s children, they are “radical,” and that there is nothing to be ashamed of when dancing for the Lord.
Stevens formed the year-old group as a way to keep the young girls, aged four to 19, free from trouble. “This praise dance group was formed as a way to give back to the community by giving children something to do that is positive,” she said.
The dance team provides the girls with leadership, guidance, counseling, tips for dealing with peer pressure, self-awareness, body maturity and using the body for Christ.
