EncounteredHeart exists to share the love of Christ through the art of dance.

Desiring to remain rooted in Christ, our mission is expressed in three pivotal areas:

Company, Community and Missions.


Our adult and youth dance companies create and rehearse throughout the year culminating in two or three performances in the Harrisburg area. We are also asked to perform as special guests at churches and community events. Additionally, we perform in partnership with other dance companies in the larger region.


EncounteredHeart provides dance opportunities to any and all individuals in the community through workshops, dance intensive days, and other types of classes. Our ministry also partners with churches to offer themed performances for particular audiences or topical events.


We use dance to reach local and international communities. The EncounteredHeart School of Ministry disciples young people for Christ. We have also sent mission teams to Mexico, Colombia, Israel, Romania, and Senegal.

EncounteredHeart Ministries, a registered 501(c)3 organization, was established in 2009 and is based in South Central Pennsylvania. Throughout our history, we have had talented company members serve faithfully, pouring out their hearts in worship and service before the Lord. We are expectant for all that God has planned for this ministry and we pray that your heart may be touched through the art of dance.
