Elizabeth Pinkham
Company Dancer, Company Ballet Instructor 
Mechanicsburg, PA

Elizabeth grew up in northern Virginia where she started dancing at age 4. She fell in love with ballet and made that her focus throughout middle school and high school, but also enjoyed taking jazz, modern, and tap at different points throughout her training. She was part of a pre-professional ballet company in high school and trained with Ballet Magnificat! during the summers. For her senior year of high school she felt the Lord calling her to something completely different, which looked like taking a break from dance and completing a discipleship training school with Youth With A Mission, during which she spent 3 months in Nepal.

God reintroduced dance in her life when she started attending Messiah College in 2014, where she got involved with Acclamation Dance Ministry. Through the process God changed her perspective of dance, transforming her attitude from one of perfectionism and performance, to seeing it as an opportunity to communicate with God and with others in a unique and powerful way. She is so excited to continue being a part of EncounteredHeart Dance Company, and is expectant for how God will use her and the company to reveal more of himself.
