A ministry of the Summers Academy of Dance
Who We Are
Under the direction of Vicki Summers, the Vision Dancers utilize their God-given abilities to provide a liturgical dance ministry to churches in the area.
Vicki, a Christian business owner, felt led by the Lord to begin this ministry in 1985. She is thankful for the blessings that have been bestowed upon her, and her desire is to give glory to God through the Vision Dancer ministry. The dancers also feel called to worship and perform in a way that is pleasing to the Lord.
Dancing faces you towards Heaven, whichever direction you turn. ~ Terri Guillemets
What We Do
Our dancers are available for a variety of events – holiday services, women’s retreats, Vacation Bible School, and special events offered at your church. Our dances are customized especially for your needs. Examples of recent performances include Pentecost, Easter, All Saint’s Day, and a women’s event.
Praise him with the sounding trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with the tambourine and dancing. ~Psalm 150:3-4
What To Expect
The Vision Dancers seek to provide God-honoring, worship-filled performances. Costumes are modest and utilized in a way that will enhance the worship experience. Whether your church’s worship style is traditional, contemporary, or blended, the Vision Dancers will work with you to provide a beautiful enhancement to your message.
Let them praise His name with dancing. ~Psalm 149:3
The Summers Academy of Dance will be training dancers in the beauty and nuance of liturgical dance. Your church members, ages 10 and up, that would like to learn Liturgical Dance to praise the Lord should call the studio at 815-477-0033 and inquire about classes.
We can also customize a class day and time to suit your schedule if you have 5 or more dancers who wish to learn Liturgical Dance or have a specific presentation they need choreographed. The dancers are able to give a visual presence to enhance the message, service, or festival for your congregation.
Then shall the young women rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old shall be merry. I will turn their mourning into joy; I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow. ~Jeremiah 31:13

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance. ~ Ecclesiastes 3:1
