Revive Retreat

Ballet 5:8’s Revive Retreat for professional dancers is a powerful weekend of refreshment, relationship and revival! The event is designed to provide rest, revitalization and renewed passion for professional dancers amid the physically and emotionally demanding lifestyle of a professional. Ballet 5:8’s retreat centers on providing time and space for dancers to experience spiritual and emotional healing through prayer, meditation, one on one spiritual mentorship, and group seminars.

Retreat Faculty members Julianna Rubio Slager, Lara Faucher, Randall Flinn and Patty Hoffman will share from their vast experience in the professional dance world, providing insight on the challenges of caring for oneself mentally, spiritually, nutritionally and emotionally in the highly intense field of professional dance. Ballet, modern improv, Christian Yoga and Creative Worship classes will allow dancers time to reconnect with their passion for dance, care for their bodies and recover the joy that first drew them into the profession. The retreat is based from a Christian worldview, but dancers from all backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to attend.
