Flag Workshops are centered around mentoring Christian leadership, developing a life of worship, life skills, fitness, teamwork and developing personal expression, releasing creativity, inspiring a life of excellence and worship unto the Lord Jesus Christ.
Using the Art of Flag Twirling and itâ€™s Biblical Teachings, students are inspired as they lift up the banner of the Lord, learn the disciplines of scripture memory drills with the flags, and choreography.Â [print_gllr id=1504 display=short]
SOEâ€™s flag classes are for everyone, usually starting as young as ages 7 and up.Â Some younger, special needs and older youth and adults are the best to really develop the ART OF FLAG TWIRLING, but everyone loves to learn.
Flag Twirling Training builds teamwork, and the program is for fitness, fun and discovering personal expression & spiritual growth.Â Â Flag twirling classes instill confidence, scripture memory, co-ordination, developing positive friendships, and building self esteem.
SOE Students may participate throughout the year in presentations at community events and SOE Concerts.Â Coordination, team spirit, dance and performance skills emerge as flag students are taught to twirl flags and strengthen their muscles, physically AND Spiritually as we all grow together in Christian worship, knowledge of Biblical meanings and how to use our bodies to communicate with the universal language of Dance and Movement!
Flag Workshop fees vary depending on materials chosen, workshop style and size of group!Â Our mandate is to Raise Up Worshipers – so nothing will limit us from coming to you and Lifting Up The Banner of the Lord with you!!!Â So contact us to START LIFTING UP THE BANNERS!!
