A worship arts academy will teach students about different art forms and how to use them in worship. These schools are typically designed for Christian students who want to grow in spirituality through the arts. Many different art forms may be considered worship arts. Dance, drama, and music are the most common art forms that are taught in worship arts schools.

Benefits of a Worship Arts Academy

A worship arts academy can help students to grow in art knowledge and also in spirituality. Worship arts academies are different from traditional arts schools because of their teaching methods and the goals of the programs. General art schools may push students to create art for their own satisfaction or to please an audience. At a worship arts school, students will perform and create art projects entirely for the glory of God.

A worship arts academy can offer a broad spectrum of subject choices to students. Dance, drama, and music are the three most common categories of art forms that can be taught at a worship arts school. These art forms may be broken down into sub-categories as well. For instance, many different styles of dance exist. Dance styles may include ballet, tap, jazz, modern, lyrical, hip hop, interpretive dance, and ballroom dance. Each of these styles can be used for praise dancing.

Music is an important aspect of most worship arts academies. Music is needed for vocal, musical instrument, and even dance performances. Worship arts classes may teach students about various aspects of music and how they can be used in worship. Some classes that may be offered include voice instruction, musical instrument instruction, choir, musical composition, contemporary Christian music, traditional Christian music, music history, recording, and sound design.
