During the training period you are trained on two levels: artistically and spiritually. Artistically, you will receive professional dance training and band members will receive specialized training in their instruments. Vocal training is available for lead vocalists. Many weeks of rehearsals go into putting our shows together and becoming performance-ready for our ministry tours. Spiritually and emotionally you will be equipped to be a sharp tool in ministry, not only in 13thFLOOR, but also for the rest of your life.We have a team of 30 students and 5 full time staff members that tour throughout South Africa partnering with churches to connect with young people and help them connect with God.We can either serve your community with a full week of performances and ministry or we can offer a shorter weekend package with a high impact product. Our products include 2 full length shows that are a combination of actors putting together a great story, a live band carrying the show with all original music, jazz, contemporary, and hip-hop dancers flooding the stage with energy and passion, and video and multi-media effects adding extra flavour to the pot. We also offer a more conventional product that typically replaces a Sunday evening service. Our Sunday evening show is innovative and fresh, yet astill appropriate to serve as a Sunday service. Then we have a worship band that offers a full evening of worship. After all that is why we do all of this, because God is our reason for living!After shows the 13thFLOOR students and staff spend time connecting with the kids. This could mean just listening where no-one has ever listened. It could mean engaging in deeper conversation explaining Gods truth within their unique situations and stories. Or it could mean praying with them, leading them to salvation, or praying for Gods presence in their hurt.While we serve in the community we visit schools presenting life-orientation classes on social issues that have a spiritual foundation. And we do promotion for the week with short 15-30 minute promotional performances. These are essential to create a following for the week!The youth weeks are divided into 4 touring cycles. 13thFLOOR tries to host a touring cycle in a specific geographical area or province to be able to focus more on one area at a time and to limit traveling expenses.All experience and qualifications Associate Teachers Qualification SABOD (November 2015) Associate dance teacher (2015- ) Level 1 and 2 Modern dance teachers (SABOD) April and November 2014 Level 1 Equi-therapist August 2014 (SATRA) First aid level 2 August 2014 (SAFL) Tutor for school children.

Testimonials from therapeutic horse riding

Daniels StoryDaniel, who was diagnosedASD at the age of 3, was completely non-verbal, not able to communicate his need, very active and totally unsociable. Roughly in August 2014, he started saying a few words and slowly his vocabulary started developing. Month to month we could hear improvement in his speech and were delighted at this development. But then in May 2015, he started horse riding with Lisa who patiently worked with him and within the first month, his school teacher confirmed definite and remarkable improvement in his speech, concentration levels, social interaction and much more. Since Daniel has started horse riding, I now recommend it above any other therapy, to anyone who has voiced any sort of concern for their child's development.Thanks for your dedication, Lisa! (2015)Henkos StoryMy son, Henko was born on 21 August 2009. He was a very calm baby with the most beautiful blue eyes, a real angel. At first he developed normally but between the age of 1 and 2, his development slowed down. He became more quite, struggled to sleep, had repetitive behaviour, didnt cope with changes in routine or environment, had problems with social skills What was concerning me most was the delay in speech as well as being in his own world sometimes. I knew something was wrong.Henko started with Speech therapy in 2012. Within a short period, he also started with Occupational therapy. After a few months, the Speech and OT Therapist suggested that we take Henko to Dr Lippert as the progress he made was very poor. Dr Lippert diagnosed Henko with PDD (ASD) and ADHD. Early 2015, I decided to take Henko for horse riding/therapy. I felt we needed to try something new as he showed a lot of progress with the OT, but he was still not able to communicate verbally.On the first day with Lisa (May 2015), I still told myself not to have high expectations regarding the results if the horse riding made him happy, I would have been pleased. Henko wasnt in a good mood on arrival. I was totally shocked after the first session. On our way home, Henko was in a good sp
