Hi, friends. :) I'm Tehillah and I love dancing.

I just graduated from the University of Michigan with a BFA in Dance, and I am so excited! After four years of grueling practice, challenging dance productions, and the accompanying awards and accolades, here is the biggest compliment I ever received after a show I produced:

“I think of the billboards run by Christian organizations that appear along the highways and expressways. How lonely and sad they look up there, how parched of beauty, how they appeal to our despair and fear of being so lost out on our lonesome highways of life. There is no joy, no beauty. Your dance had joy, beauty, thinking, intelligence, a rationality that came from the body. I really appreciate that.”

The fact that my "Christian" dance moved the heart of my professor reflected one of my deepest desires in pursuing dance. I love this art form and I want to be the best that I can be, but my biggest passion is bringing dance into the church and Christ into my dance. I believe God has a heart for dance and wants to see it restored to the purpose he created it for: to love the world and provide a way for people to connect to him.

In order to partner with God in this quest, I am enrolled in a Bible School located in Redding, California (the school has a dance studio in the church as well as an established dance ministry). From September to May, it will be a time to research the power of dance shown in the Bible, explore ways that it can currently impact humanity, and experiment in the studio. I can't wait to see what I discover!

So, while this is an unusual way to launch a dance career, I would be so honored if you would invest in my life this year and help me get to Bible School! I need $4,400 by September 1st to cover tuition. Whatever you can do to help me achieve this goal would be much appreciated!

Thank you so much for your love and support, friends! I am grateful from the bottom of my heart.
