ENGAGE... EMPOWER... EVOLVE!
MOJUBA! DANCE COLLECTIVE
A West African concept essentially meaning "to praise," Mojuba! is a growing collective of talented artists who have chosen or been chosen to give their gift of dance back to God."
Mojuba! Dance Collective was established in 2014 as a touring company of Errin Ministries. The company seeks to honor the cultural and spiritual traditions of African Americans that has evolved throughout the Diaspora. Mojuba - which loosely means “to salute, honor, or praise” is a West African concept that aligns with the mission and vision of MDC. The work draws heavily on integrating movement styles from a myriad of genres which celebrate the artistic legacies of people of color. Mojuba! is a company driven by community. They strive to serve as a vehicle of awareness, development, and empowerment for members and audiences alike. The company is passionate about supporting the evolution of ministry as a dance form, and offers classes and workshops to continue to deepen its reach. The company debuted in its world premiere of “How I Got Over- a Cultural Journey of Faith” and has had the honor of presenting at the International Association of Blacks in dance Conference held in Cleveland in 2015.
We are in the passionate pursuit of God as we strive to raise the standard of dance as used for prayer and worship. Under the direction of the Holy Spirit, we aim to train extensively and pray fervently to create and inspire an atmosphere that engages and empowers our audiences and dancers toward dynamic praise and magnificent breakthrough. "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." (1 Peter 2:9 NIV)
