Hi I’m Analiese Shepherd! I’m 27, a wife of 6 years, and a mom to 3 beautiful children. I started dancing at age 4 and did professional ballet through age 17. I was set on going professional and was already preparing to attend the Grand Prix. It wasn’t until I visited Ballet Magnificat at age 13 something in me shifted. It was there that I was opened to the idea of using dance as a way to be vulnerable before the Lord and worship Him. I learned I could use my gift of dance not only to connect to Him in my quiet time but as a way to share His presence with others around me. Dance was my saving grace as a teenager. It gave me an outlet to express myself and grow deeper in the Lord even when all at home was unstable. I have proceed to use the talent He gave me over the years from ministering to orphans in India to dancing with the Thorn at New Life church. This past year God has been laying on my heart to desire to disciple young women. As I prayed on it, He gave me the idea of combining my love of dance with discipling. I want to create a safe place young women can come and dance, have fun, and grow in Him. Please feel free to contact me at
