On Our Hearts: October



1.     Of the sun or another source of light; to give out a bright light.

2.     To be very talented or perform very well.


  1. A quality of brightness, especially from reflected light.

“Arise, SHINE, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.”                                                                    

  — Isaiah 60:1-3

Turning Pointe Dance is committed to providing excellence in dance and theater instruction while cultivating hearts of worship and nurturing creativity. In addition to dance and theater training, our dancers go beyond technique to develop important life skills including learning to be respectful and confident, and share their gifts and talents with the community and beyond. As our students and staff pray over October’s focus and scripture, we invite you to join us in prayer as we celebrate all the ways #TPSHINES!

 How We SHINE:

 "Let your light SHINE before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”

                                                                                                                      — Matthew 5:16

 Join us October 5 as we SHINE to our community through COS I Love You’s CityServe initiative. Participate in an official event, or simply perform an act of service (This can be anything from volunteering at your church, school or local food pantry, picking up trash at your local park or simply bringing cookies to your neighbors).

 Snap a picture of your efforts and share it using #TPSHINES and #CityServeDay2019 throughout the day and tag Turning Pointe for your chance to be featured on our Instagram or Facebook page!

 Turning Pointe is committed to SHINING His light in our city, and participates in outreach and service events each month. Be sure to read your newsletter for information regarding upcoming events and find your chance to participate and SHINE with us!

 “Those who are wise will SHINE like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.”

                                                                                                                                    — Daniel 12:3

Let our dancers SHINE for you during Fall Peek Week, October 7-12. For the last 15 minutes of each class, families and friends are invited to take a peek and observe what our dancers have been learning. Bring your cameras and share in the joy as we SHINE His light through the gifts and talents of our students! Your next chance to observe will be Christmas programs, December 2-14.

 “Let your face SHINE on your servant; save me in your unfailing love..”

                                                                                                                                    — Psalm 31:16

Our vision is to be a faith-based center for the arts in our community that empowers students with grit, grace, and gratitude for the arts and for His Kingdom. Our long-term goal is to see TP students flourish in their gifts and be equipped to go into every man’s world by training the whole person body, mind, and spirit. This month, we focus our hearts on SHINING His light on the stage, in the classroom and beyond!
