Makayla Holmes - PARADOSI BALLET

Hello! My name is Mikayla and I am a ballet dancer at Paradosi Ballet in Tacoma, WA. Paradosi was founded in 2007 with a mission to share the Gospel through dance, drama, and personal witness in the greater Tacoma area, North America, and Europe. We desire to worship God, love people, share the Gospel, and make disciples of Jesus everywhere we go. As a trainee, I have ballet classes, ministry training, rehearsals, outreaches, and student teacher training at the Surrendered School of Dance.
Acts 17:28 says, “For in Him we live, move, and have our being.” My giftings fit into a very specific way of how God speaks to people -- through dance, and I am eager to use my years of training to encourage, build up, and challenge our audiences. For those who do not know Christ, it is Paradosi’s prayer that our dancing be an introduction to His beauty and hope in a unique and artistic way. For those who do know Christ, it is our hope that dance will draw them into worship and much closer to our wonderful Savior.
Will you please partner with me and Paradosi in prayer this season? Of all the voices vying for our attention, I pray our voices and actions resonate the peace which surpasses understanding. As a disciple of Jesus, I want to follow in His footsteps by being a hopeful, non-anxious influence in today's world. Knowing there is one in whom we can put our hope and trust, we will take the message of Romans 15:13 to those we encounter. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
