   Mission
Ross Dance Company is a professional Christian praise dance company founded by Dr.Tecsia Evans and
Dwight Evans in August 2005 in Oakland, CA. Our mission is to use contemporary dance as a way to
spread the Gospel and to bring those closer to Christ. Psalm 150:2 says to "Praise Him for His mighty
deeds; praise Him according to His excellent greatness! Ross' mission is to exalt Christ wit excellence in
everything that we do. We are privileged to use our ministry as a way to equip and inspire praise dancers all
over the country. As a non-profit company we reach over 125 churches and praise dance organizations
each year through our youth and adult classes and conferences and over 4,000 audience members
through our concerts and guest performances. Ross has performed in a variety of venues such as, Joyce
Soho in New York to City of Refuge in Los Angeles, an internationally known ministry pastored by Bishop
Noel Jones. We are committed to community outreach and educating young dancers. We foster
professional development and the gift that God has given to young adult dancers through our
apprenticeship program. Our appentices are mentored by the artistic director, engage in ongoing
classes, learn company repertoire and work closely with the company members. We also offer low cost
consultations and private workshops to praise dance programs to help them further their skills in leadership,
choreography, and teaching. Our anointed team of staff, volunteers and professional dancers are truly
committed to using our gifts to inspire,educate and give glory to God!
