Dance to Scripture
Mary Jones trained in dance in the USA and Australia. She pioneered the Christian Dance Fellowship in Australia and internationally, and Prepare Dance. More recently she has set up a dance ministry training course, the ICDF Foundation and CaraMayan - dance exercise to scripture.
Mary has mentored, trained and inspired generations of dancers across decades of ministry and professional work.
She will be teaching CaraMayan this week based on a scripture related to the week's theme.
Claire Jones is from the Blue Mountains in NSW. An actor by profession who also teaches drama, Claire supports her mother, Mary Jones, teaching CaraMayan workshops. Claire toured New Zealand with Mary in 2022 where they taught 10 Cara Mayan workshops around the country. Claire also is part of the music team at her local church.
Dance Movement to Scripture
Begin the day learning movements that express scripture on the week's theme, and move together to the Bible for exercise, fitness, worship and prayer.
CaraMayan is a Christian sacred dance alternative to Yoga and Tai Chi based on contemporary dance and pilates movement, developed by Christian dance pioneer Mary Jones. It is suitable for those with or without a dance background.
CaraMayan classes have been produced on DVD since 2009 and were launched at the International Christian Dance Fellowship conference in Scotland as a system of movement meditation that could be widely available for people to learn and teach around the world.
Join Mary and her daughter Claire in this very special expression of faith through movement.
