History - In 1989, Patricia O'Quinn Warren, found Artistic Productions Incorporated, a non-profit organization, to provide quality dance performances in rural Eastern North Carolina communities. The repertoire has transitioned from an annual to biennial production of The Nutcracker to annual productions of Dance for Christ.
What is Dance for Christ? Dance for Christ (DFC) is a ministry used to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through dance. The production features various genres of dance-ballet, lyrical, tap, jazz, and hip-hop. Dancers become the vessels which put God in the spotlight. As believers, the mission is to bring honor and praise to Jesus Christ and to open up the hearts and minds of non-believers to God's word in a way that is both relevant and truthful. Each dance piece tells a story or demonstrates God's unfailing love and mercy.
The Founder - Patricia O.Warren, founder and artistic director, was trained in her early years by her mother, Ellen O'Quinn, a principal and soloist with the Metropolitan Opera House in West Germany. Warren later studied at the Joffrey Ballet in New York, the North Carolina School of the Arts and the Cusack Ballet in Los Angeles. She has performed throughout the United States and abroad. It was during her battle with breast cancer, that the vision of Dance for Christ was born. Her desire was to use the art of dance as a ministry. The mission would provide a wonderful celebration to reach one more for Jesus and to "change lives...one dance at a time."
