At Restored to Glory Dance Ministry we not only teach dance, but we also train our dancers in worship and study of God's Holy Word. We partner with parents leading our dancers to seek the Lord, listen for His voice and obey His word. Our dance is an expression of our love and adoration to Jesus Christ, as well as a proclamation of our faith, a witness of whom we serve. Our dances either tell a scriptural story accompanied by narration or are direct praise and worship to Jesus our Lord. Each dance class includes the study of God's Word and prayer. We value the training of our spirits as well as our bodies.
RTG is a citywide ministry, we are made up of believers from a variety of local Christian churches. Our dancers range in age from four years old through adult, both girls and guys. We are located in Leo, Indiana, just ten miles north of Fort Wayne. We have a sister branch located in Bay City, Michigan.
RTG was founded in 1987 by Ann Stevenson of Bay City Michigan. Her sister, Peggy Alberda, started this branch ministry located in Leo, Indiana in 1988. The girls mother, Norinne Sprung, had been a dancer since the 1940's and had owned her own dance studio most of her adult life. Both girls grew up at the studio and were dancing by the age of three. They both began teaching their own classes as young teens.
Restored to Glory is one of the largest and longest standing Christian dance studios in the Nation. This upcoming year, 2017-2018, marks our 30th season! It's going to be something special!
