Faith in Motion Christian School of Dance
RaChelle Fears-Neal, Owner / Director
“Everything is possible for him who BELIEVES. ” —Mark 9:23
Welcome to Faith in Motion, where we “Dance with a Purpose!”
How great is our God! Thank you Jesus for entrusting this vision to me, for your faithfulness when I was faithless; for your healing when I was sick; for restoration of broken dreams; for a peace that surpasses all of my understanding; for being my comfort when no one else was around; for your provision through my ignorance and wisdom for my unknowing; for your all sufficient grace that carried me when I ran out of strength; for making up every difference I could not fulfill…it is for all this and so much more that I give you praise. “Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto your name be all glory because of your love and faithfulness.” –Psalm 115:1
Hello! My name is RaChelle Fears-Neal and I am the Overseer of Faith in Motion Christian School of Dance and Fitness, LLC. My husband, Mikel, and I reside in Marion and have four adult children, three grandchildren and our Pocket Bully, Khobi. In May of 2000 I accepted Christ as Lord of my life and committed my gift of dance for the uplifting, blessing and building of His Kingdom! I began my dance career at the age of 3 under the direction of Teal Royer. I have over 28 years of dance experience in the secular industry, including the techniques of Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Pointe, Hip-Hop & Liturgical. Although I have attended numerous competitions and workshops my focus now is not to glorify the “gift”, but the “Giver”.
Faith in Motion is a Christ-centered worship facility that offers instruction in dance technique as well as individual & group fitness without compromising lyrics or movements. There was a painful process of bridging the gap between my passion and my purpose. In approximately 2001, I experienced my Abraham & Isaac test. The thing I thought I loved most (dance), He asked me to sacrifice. Once I surrendered the “secular” dance, God began opening doors for me with worship dancing. I was blessed to organize and direct several dance ministries in local churches as well as educational facilities in and surrounding Grant County. After a few years of being a “mobile” dance school I put my “Faith in Motion” and leased a dance floor (literally, a 600 sq ft floor!) Following multiple temporary locations, in June of 2014, we made our final move into a 25,000 sq ft facility in downtown Marion, IN, which now serves as our corporate office. I thank God for His grace, mercy and favor!
I can truly say that the Lord has hand-picked each faculty member that is serving alongside me. Each one of these young ladies hold a special place in my heart and it is our honor to have the opportunity to serve you. Our pledge to you is not our perfection, but His presence as we lead and instruct you to put your “Faith in Motion” and “Dance with a Purpose”!
Faith in Motion was birthed at my home church, Allen Temple AMEC, with 50 youth in approximately 1999. It was there, under the leadership of the late Rev. Ida James, that the Lord began to speak to me through Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Owning a dance studio has been a life-long passion of mine. Ironically, Rev. James initially approached me regarding instructing a fitness class at the church. Her only stipulation was that I had to use Christian music. You might say my walk with Christ then was not where it is now, and I declined! Oh, but in all these years I’ve learned about the will of God, and within His will is His way AND His timing. Not only do we offer the techniques of Tap, Jazz, Hip-Jazzy-Hop, Ballet, Pointe and Modern to Christian music; we also offer Movement & Meditation which is our Christ-centered Yoga class, and WAMM (With All My Might) Cardio Dance fitness class…and YES, we use Christian music for our fitness classes as well! None of this would be possible without my parents, the late Russell C. & Joan (Boyd) Fears. I am eternally grateful for their steadfast sacrifice, support and dedication to my career in dance and honor their memory in the subtitle of the studio, naoJ llessuR. It is my desire to use this gift and our classes of dance and fitness to bring people closer to Christ.
“I am therefore Christ’s ambassador, as though God were making his appeal through me. I implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” –2 Corinthians 5:20
Man Without Borders Magazine - The Magic of Dance
N. Poussin. Dance to the music of time
Dance has always accompanied a person. In different eras, it was part of culture, religion, education, became a profession, therapy, entertainment, sports, art. Kings and commoners, aristocrats and inhabitants of working districts danced. Dances were born in academies, in palaces, in slums. We dance in ballrooms, at discos, on the streets, at home, we dance in company and alone ...
Where does the need to move come from? What are we looking for in dance? Why do we associate it with something joyful and happy, with an emotional upsurge, with a holiday?
And where to look for the origins of dance? History teaches: the deeper the roots of a tree, the easier it stretches into space. What must be the roots of the tree of dance, which has given so many shoots? From what mysterious seed did it grow?
I have never seen Anna Pavlova working in front of a mirror. The dance was formed in her ... in her soul, and when she felt it, she, having listened to the music several times, as if gradually merging it with the image that had arisen in her, began to express it at first with the movements of her hands, which were unusually expressive in her, and then gradually embodied it in a dance, as if listening to what she sang in her soul.
Plato said that any art is a reflection of one celestial Idea that contains all the many forms and manifestations. If we continue his thought, then what is the original Idea of the dance?
Anyone who had the good fortune to come into serious contact with dance probably knows: if its secret consisted only in technique - in the correct inclination of the head or the position of the body, arms and legs, then almost everyone could easily master this art. But, apparently, there is something behind the correctly executed pas that makes you search and think.
Philosophy of dance... It was probably too presumptuous of me to take a swing at such a voluminous and serious topic. But I so wanted with you, dear reader, to reflect on questions that are much more than answers! And if you agree to the hard work of a researcher, then we can go into the depths of history together. Maybe we'll get lucky and find the answers.
Legends say that the gods danced to create the world. Traces of this ancient dance are preserved in the movement of the stars and planets, which taught it to all living things. “This is precisely the nature of the stars, so beautiful in appearance: their movement and round dances are more beautiful and majestic than all round dances; they do what is due to all living beings,” writes Plato in the Laws.
Look, the seasons change, day and night, birth and death, the calm of winter is replaced by the active, daring power of spring. The great cultures that have already left the arena of history saw in this not just a series of events, but the law of life, the basic law of movement. And for a person who felt himself an inseparable part of nature and the universe, it was very important to understand this law and follow it.
But how to do it? How to understand that at a certain moment of the year all nature passes, and how to join its movement?
For this, ceremonies served - bridges between the worlds visible and invisible, between man and the universe. By participating in the ceremony, a person could touch the great laws of life, without even realizing it to the end, could become a participant in the Great Movement. And dance and theater, unfolding simultaneously in time and space, became the best mediators in this.
Shiva - god-creator and god-destroyer in Ancient India
In every religion, every nation has preserved myths telling about the divine origin, the beginning of the dance. Great Shiva in Ancient India, Osiris in Egypt, Apollo and Dionysus in Greece - they symbolized the principle of creation and movement of the world.
Shiva is the god-creator and the god-destroyer, peace and harmony are alien to him, he constantly moves and makes all things move. Shiva dances the dance of creation and death of the universe. When he takes a step forward, the world is born, and a step back destroys the world. Dancing, God destroys evil and injustice.
The Egyptians saw their life as a Way. They walked across their beloved land from city to city, from god to god along the huge Temple - the House where God lives with many faces. Take a look at their reliefs that have come down to us - they are always on the Way, they go. Everyone except Osiris, the one who overcame this law of cycles: “There is only one Life that moves smoothly forward on two legs - life and death. This cycle is repeated as long as there is a road that can be walked, merging at the end of it with the World Soul, the solar spirit, Amon-Ra, where the King of the World resides - Osiris, the-who-has-only-one-leg " (Jorge Angel Livraga "Thebes").
The world, the Egyptians knew, was in constant motion. If the world stops and begins to disintegrate, the sounds of the sistrum, the sacred instrument of Hathor, the Golden Goddess of Love, the patroness of music and dance, restore the natural rhythm of Nature, restore harmony, order and balance to the world.

We dance in honor of her majesty:
We bring her image to the highest heavens,
She is the mistress of the sistra and
the goddess of ringing necklaces.
When she opens her eyes - the sun and the moon,
the heart rejoices, seeing the light.
She is the master of dance ceremonies.
Lady of charm.
We don't dance for anyone
and we don't greet anyone but her.

The Egyptian dance was laconic and simple, but capacious and dynamic. Just a few basic postures and movements. A clear rhythm that deprived the dance of randomness and spontaneity. Strict symmetry, proportions, harmony of forms, the obligatory verticality of the body, deployed in a spiral, ascending to the sky. Symbolic gestures conveying divine principles and laws. An action that repeats the myth, becoming sacred.
The Land of Ancient Hellas... Looking at the numerous ancient Greek reliefs and sculptures that have survived to our times, we see free and graceful poses in the round dances of the muses and Bacchic dances devoid of grace, as if the earthly and heavenly in a person are arguing with each other. A person is looking for the "golden mean" of combining ideas and forms in everything, including movement. Here the muse of dance is born - Terpsichore, the personification of harmony.
“The Greeks believed that the dance was given to people by the gods and that at the moment of the dance the human soul was freed from the shackles of bodily life and transformed, tasting bliss outside of bodily existence, merging with the divine force of nature. From his own experience, a person was convinced of the originality of his soul, the possibility for it to live independently of the body. Therefore, the Greeks did not just believe in the immortality of the soul, they knew that their soul was immortal,” writes Ilona Kamad in the book “The Ritual Side of the Cults of Ancient Greece”.

In the temples of Crete, the dance repeated the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur, helping each participant in the action to gain the experience of passing through the labyrinth. In Sparta, warriors danced before battle. Military dance developed the body and awakened the strength of the warrior's spirit, helped to feel unity and harmony.
In Rome, vestal priestesses performed ceremonial rites in dance and procession to pay homage to the sacred fire of the city, which symbolized the center. Dancing played an important role in the Orphic and Eleusinian mysteries. In tragedies, the dance conveyed the feelings of gods and heroes. In comedies, the actors performed the dizzying dance of satyrs.
The author of the first ever treatise on dance, Lucian (II century), reflecting on dance in human life and what qualities a dancer should possess, wrote as follows: “The art of dancing requires an ascent to the highest levels of all sciences: not only music, but also rhythm, geometry, and especially philosophy, both natural and moral... A dancer needs to know everything!”
The wise Hellenes discovered for us one more purpose of dance - to educate the soul and body. They saw that dance is capable of awakening the soul to life, giving a person the criteria of the Beautiful, awakening the best qualities - virtues. Socrates was the first to speak about inner and outer beauty, calling it kalokagatia (kalos - "beautiful", agatos - "kind").
Wall painting of the tomb of the ruler Triclinius. Tarquinia. Italy
Plato, developing this concept, spoke about the proportionality of spiritual and bodily beauty. And he considered the art of music, music and dance, as the strongest educational means: “it most penetrates into the depths of the soul and most strongly affects it; rhythm and harmony bring goodness with them, and it makes a person look good too.
When did man dance? As in all times - on holidays. And the holidays not only gave a sense of unity with each other, but also became a beautiful educational tool.
“The gods, out of compassion for the human race, born for labor, established instead of a respite from these labors, divine festivities, bestowed the Muses, Apollo, their leader, and Dionysus as participants in these festivities, so that it would be possible to correct the shortcomings of education at the festivities with the help of the gods . .. The same gods, of whom we said that they were given to us as participants in our round dances, gave us a sense of harmony and rhythm, coupled with pleasure. With the help of this feeling, they move us and lead our round dances when we unite in songs and dances. Round dances (χοροΰς) were named so because of their inner affinity with the word "joy" (χαράς),” Plato writes in his Laws.
Indeed, how often dance gives us inspiration and joy! “The soul gains wings,” we say. There is a strong connection between movement and the internal state of a person. Just try to straighten up, and you will feel a surge of confidence and strength. In our practical time, which has gone far from kalokagatiya, this connection is actively used by art therapy (art treatment).
Since the time of ancient Greece, dance has firmly entered the classical system of education, every educated person has mastered the art of dance. And the etiquette that appeared in the 15th century was forever related to dance.
Each epoch embodied its ideals in dance, its ideas about the virtues of a person. Secular dance has become a mirror of the relationship between a knight and a lady, a gentleman and a young lady, a man and a woman. The stately pavane of the Renaissance, the gallant baroque minuet, the solemn and strict polonaise, the impetuous mazurka and the romantic waltz, the unpredictable tango, the flirtatious Charleston, the frantic rock and roll - do you feel how the dance changes with the era? In the mirror of our time, we can easily look ourselves. By what dance will our era and our ideals be recognized? How will distant descendants see us?
Holidays have remained in our lives, only the Gods visit them less and less often and hardly participate in our “round dances”…
In the 17th century dance acquired the status of a profession. In France, under Louis XIV, the first Academy of Dance opened, it trained choreographers, and later dancers. By this time, ballet had already been born in Italy . .. But the eternal question still remained: what is the purpose of dance?
J.-B. Perrono. Jean Georges Nover. 1764
Jean Georges Nover, the great choreographer whose birthday, April 28, we celebrate International Dance Day every year, became a bold reformer. He struggled with the nonsense of ballet, with the mechanicalness of movements, returning the dance to the connection with the inner world of man. Like seven notes in music, he was looking for seven basic steps in ballet that could express the basic states of the soul. Reading his letters and his book, one involuntarily wonders if he is our contemporary?
Just as words are made up of letters, and phrases are made up of words, so “words” and “phrases” of dance are made up of individual movements, constituting the poetry of a choreographic narrative. It can be extremely varied. It can and must develop, as living human speech develops, which is enriched and modified over time, with the development of society, with the renewal of the social and spiritual life of the people. At the same time, its function is to express deep, genuine truth. With the language of ballet, one can say something important, great and necessary truth about the beauty that lives in the human heart.
“Let the dance now be beautiful in appearance, and I often hear that it can please and captivate even in the absence of spirituality. I agree that the technical side of the dance art has been brought to the highest degree of perfection and leaves nothing to be desired. I will say more - it is often distinguished by great grace and nobility. But is technique really all that dance should have?
Can this be called art? How is it even possible to call something that is limited only by the technique of pas, the mechanical movement of the hands, a dance? It can only be considered as a craft. After all, in order to be a poet, it is not enough to know only the alphabet!”
For Nover, ballet is the younger brother of an ancient family of arts that owe their origin to imagination and genius. He encourages dancers to study the laws of beauty and harmony, to learn to feel the beautiful. And devote all your free time to the study of history and mythology, read Homer, Virgil, Ariosto, Tasso, in order to feel the beauty of poetry.
Communication with artists will improve taste and help develop thoughts; reflecting on the works of a genius, the dancers will discover that invisible thread that binds all the arts, and learn that only by imitating nature can something truly beautiful, wise and interesting be created.
“Let the dance stop being silent,” Nover reflects, “and speak strongly and figuratively. To do this, you have to give up technology in the name of the idea.
Only an enlightened, art-educated dancer will be able to educate an enlightened spectator who will not be content with graceful but empty pas, but will thirst for true spiritual food. ”
The ideas of Nover will be developed by August Bournonville, Maria Taglioni, Mikhail Fokin, Anna Pavlova, Isadora Duncan, Galina Ulanova and many, many - trying, experimenting, making mistakes, winning, but always carrying in their hearts a deep love for Art and modestly serving it. And oddly enough, everyone will look back to the past to pave the way for the future.
Perhaps, in this continuous search for answers, everyone becomes a philosopher?
And if we imagine that the life of each of us is a dance, what will it be like? Sad and joyless, carefree and laid-back, unhurried, fussy, or beautiful and deep? It's up to us, isn't it? After all, everyone creates his own dance, his own line of fate, looking for his steps in order to move along the road of life. And, probably, the whole question is with what and with whom do we reunite ourselves, with what do we reconnect, feel unity?
Indeed, without this unity — with the Divine, with other people, with oneself — dance will not be born. Perhaps this is the most important answer.
Is it necessary to serve the Lord with your gift? be it dancing, or music, or any other talent?
Answer: Alexandra Lanz
Peace be with you, Ivan!
Of course, with everything that is given to you, you must serve only God, because if not to Him, then service will be to someone else: money, your vanity, your desire to be the first, recognized, self-realized .... There is no third given. Everything that a person has, a person serves either God or not God .... but he serves.
For example, Paul writes to the brethren in Thessalonica:
1 Thess. 1:9 ... you turned to God from idols [to] serve the living and true God.
No intermediate link here. A person either serves idols or abandons them and serves God. And in the parables, Jesus clearly states that man is always a serving being, man is always the steward of what he has, and therefore he will give an account to the One who gave him everything.
Only now it seems to me that you and I understand the meaning of the word “serve” differently. Let me tell you how I understand it?
To serve God does not mean to sing and dance before Him to make Him feel good. And to be honest, the perfect God, in principle, cannot be surprised by anything. A person who believes that his abilities can somehow delight God, Who Himself is infinitely perfect and beautiful, or at least angels who live in the constant presence of His perfect beauty, enjoying it every second, is found in pride and selfishness. Well, let's be honest, because even the voice of Placido Domingo and the beauty of Maya Plisetskaya's movements will never be able to reach what God calls perfection.
Then it turns out that serving God does not consist in our dancing in front of Him, singing songs, reciting poetry, etc.
To serve God means to live as He says.
“…what does the Lord your God require of you? Only that you fear the Lord your God, walk in all His ways, and love Him, and serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, so that you keep the commandments of the Lord and His ordinances, which I command you today, that it may be well with you” (Deut. 10:12:13).
“…righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Whoever serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and [worthy of] approval from people” (Rom. 14:17-18)
God says: “Keep my commandments” (John 14:15), “Seek the kingdom of God” (Matt. .6:33), “forgive” (Luke 6:37), “love your enemies and your brothers” (Luke 6:25), “do my word” (Mat. 8:24)
So if a person does not live, as God says , then even though he dances like Plisetskaya, even though he sings like Domingo, even though he sits motionless in silence, he still does not serve God. But he serves himself.
But if a person's life is in harmony with God's will, then every talent of this person will be used correctly. Then the dancing and singing produced by such a person will shine to the hearers with all the beautiful facets of God's character. Do you know the character of God? God is the focus and source of all that is right and true: goodness, love, mercy, justice, eternal life, truth, holiness, righteousness .
