Performing Arts DTS
The Performing Arts elective is for those who have a passion for music, dance, and other forms of creative arts; particularly with a Pacific Islands expression.
In addition to the transformational discipleship you will receive during the training phase of your DTS, you will also be a part of creating productions with the end goal of using them on outreach in Australia or Papua New Guinea to share an important message and story.
The Performing Arts DTS is all about celebrating culture, and bringing a message of hope in a dynamic and captivating way.
If you are drawn to island culture and enjoy performing arts – then this elective might just be for you!
