A letter from Carol Danna,
Worship Director at the Cornerstone Church
Thank you for your interest in CAPA Dance Program. We believe God has opened up the doors for this ministry. As a community of followers of Christ at The Cornerstone, we believe that we are created to bring God glory with our gifts and talents. This ministry dream for all of our teachers began to take shape several years ago. Over a period of two to three weeks, one by one, the dancers and dance instructors in our church began connecting with me to begin praying and discussing these dreams. What I have discovered while getting to know these wonderful young people is that they are skilled and trained instructors who are passionate about dance and about worshiping God. What a great combination!
My heart for worshipping God has been a life-long passion. As a songwriter, musician, worship leader and pastor’s wife, I revel at the opportunity to see the arts released. I look forward to what God has in store for this ministry and those who are involved.

CAPA offers several performance opportunities throughout the season, but our big annual recital is at the end of our season, usually in June or July. Our recital has grown in popularity so much that this year we will be expanding to 3 performances in order to accommodate those who attend! It is one of those events that is fun, tiring and so rewarding all at the same time.
The dates for the show will be finalized in November and you will receive advance notice in November/December. If you’d like to participate, we ask that you plan your summer events so that your dancer does not miss classes around that time. All those enrolled in CAPA will receive an email with the show details. Attendance to a show meeting (there will be several days to choose from), regular attendance to classes, and a mandatory rehearsal will be required for dancers to participate.
