Encounter

Encounter Performing Arts Company (EPAC) is a pre-professional group of the highest level dancers at Grace Ballet and Acrobatics.  These dancers train all year to go out into the community and share the gospel of Jesus Christ through dance.  We bring high quality technique and professionalism into schools, nursing homes, markets, churches, and more!

Mission

 The Mission of Encounter is “Sharing the Gospel of grace through the splendor of dance” 
 
It is our goal that every student’s love for the Lord is so evident in their presence and dancing that audience members are left feeling encouraged and reminded of the love that our Lord provides.

"Two of my daughters dance with Encounter Performing Arts Company, and I have been able to witness firsthand the quality of their training. Not only have they grown in technical skill, but they have also developed in strength of character, all while building wholesome relationships to last a lifetime. The art Encounter produces is skillful, beautiful, and worshipful, but the experience their artists are gaining goes so much deeper than dance. Truly, theirs is an instruction that forms the whole person and a ministry that touches the heart."
