Theography is the study of God and dance. Founded and
trademarked by Venetia James, this particular genre illustrates the
gospel of Jesus Christ through movement and communication. Being
eclectic, Theography fuses many different styles of dance together.
Some examples are modern, jazz, African Caribbean, and contemporary.
In addition, it incorporates a variety of forms of communication
such as sign language, theatre, speaking, gestures, props, and more.
Theography consist of three main components: Theology, Apologetics,
presents theography dance presentations at church services,
gospel entertainment events and concerts, weddings,
retirement celebrations, birthday celebrations and much
more. In fact, we will choreograph specialized dance
selections as requested. For more information about booking
