About Deo Dance Creations, a Christian Creative Arts Ministry

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, —Psalm 30:11

Praise Him with timbrel and dancing! — Psalm 150:4

Deo Dance Creations, founded by Leila Grandemange, is a Christian dance ministry created to facilitate a vibrant encounter with God through the creative arts by:

  1. Teaching, encouraging, and equipping those wanting to learn more about dance and mime as a means to worship, serve, and glorify God.
  2. Choreographing dance for worship and outreach.
  3. Providing information, resources, and links on the topic of worship and the prophetic arts.

Dance, Drama, Mime Ministry Videos

“In the challenge of this journey, called life, lays a secret path between man and God called worship.” — Anne Stevenson

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to choreograph, dance, and participate in dance and mime ministry throughout the USA and abroad. Each of the videos below tells a story of hope, shared from personal experience. If your church or ministry is interested in learning more about dance, drama, or mime as a form of worship/outreach, I’d be happy to speak with you— contact form.

Below are videos of dance and mime messages I’ve presented at churches and ministry events.
