Bringing Light to the World Through Dance

Contact us today if you wish to invite our dance ministry to minister for your church, community, or performance event*.

We Dance for God

The Angels of Transformation Dancers is a ministry of dance and healing that was established in 2014. Our members come in various shapes, sizes, and ages from 30 to 70 years old. We come from all walks of life—teachers, executives, postal workers, bankers, mothers, grandmothers, and more.

Together, we share our passion for dancing and love for God. We also use our various life experiences to minister our faith to others. Through dance, we hope to create a healing energy that transforms people’s lives and enlightens them about God’s light in the world.

Contact us today if you wish to invite our dance ministry to minister for your church, community, or performance event*. We perform across the New York Tri-State Area. Let The Angels of Transformation Dancers bless your event and transform your space. We look forward to sharing the light of the Divine with you and everyone at your event.

*To ensure the well-being of everyone during the pandemic, we now also do virtual presentations. Get in touch for more information.

How It all Started

On November 6, 2014, 24 Angels came together to officially form a new dance ministry called The Angels of Transformation Dancers. We are not what the world considers as “the norm” for professional dancers, but we are professional in our own ways.

We are women of different shapes, sizes, backgrounds, talents, and occupations who have come together in prayer, healing, meditation, spiritual studies, and of course, dance. We simply want to bring happiness, good vibes, and the light of the Lord to the world through our ministry of dance. Our goal is to transform every location or event we perform at with our dancing and fill it up with Divine Energy.

The name Angels of Transformation came from an excerpt in the book "Is Church 'as is' Really Enough" by Jeffrey V. Noble which challenges the church to use the "Angels of Transformation sitting in church pews" waiting to do more to heal God's people. Many of the dancers in The Angels of Transformation are energy healers and we heal through dance.

Romans 12: 1-2 (NIV)

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”


Through dance and energy healing, The Angels of Transformation Dancers minister at various churches, community centers, theaters, schools, and other venues. Through our performances, we transform these spaces and raise their spiritual vibrations. As believers in Christ, we are led by the Spirit to become more Christ-like in our thinking, spiritual development, and everyday lives.

Through the study of God’s word, higher teachings, prayer, meditation, and energy healing, we prepare ourselves spiritually for what life has in store for us. Through consistent dance technique classes and rehearsals, we prepare the dance movement and promote wellness in society. By combining these two, we bring God’s light to the world through dance.


We want to bring God’s light to the world through dance.
