Release Date: 11/03/2017
Steve Rooks is a compelling artist as a dancer and choreographer. He creates works for dance companies all over the world and currently teaches at Vassar College. You don't have to be a dancer to appreciate his wisdom about the responsibility of being a professional artist living out the gospel in today's world. If you're a late bloomer, you'll love Steve's story of discovering dance post-college and how it changed the course of his life as he then received a full scholarship to train at the Alvin Ailey School of Dance and shortly after became a principal dancer with Martha Graham Company. He discovered the love of Christ when he first walked into the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church and was overwhelmed with a feeling of grace vs condemnation. He has so much depth and wisdom about being a believer and involved in the arts. Grab a journal, you'll want to take notes!
