About us

Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet is a professional company operating as a ministry of Living Rock Church of Killingworth.  Ekklesia is a Greek word defined as “a called-out assembly or congregation.” This company represents the church without walls, using innovative and relevant works to speak to the hearts and minds of those who engage with them. We share our vision through performances and outreach events, and seek to foster an environment in which aspiring dance artists can develop their talents.

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”  1 Peter 2:9

The centerpiece of every Project Dance event is the Open Air Dance Concert.  Historically, they have taken dance out of the studios and theaters and onto the streets, making dance accessible to anyone and everyone.  They desire to use this family-friendly concert to bring hope and healing to hearts through the universal language of dance.  Dance has a way of reaching our innermost being and the pieces presented often reflect that understanding.
