This past weekend, our dance team did a ministry piece for our Sunday service.

It was I bow my knee, sung by Ron Kenoly.

The song is simple worship chorus with a very slow tempo, but the arrangement and vocals are excellent and it builds throughout the piece, has a great intro and ending....all components that can make for an anointed presentation piece.

As I listened to the song through for the first time, I immediately knew we could use it as vehicle of expressive worship and give a throne room experience to those who saw it.

The choreography used dance, a banner and crown, and celebration streamers. The multi-colored Celebration Streamers represent the favor of the Father over His people, taken from the reference to Joseph's many-colored coat representing the favor of his father.

The piece begins with a solo dancer who is joined by a second for a duet of the 2nd verse. A king's crown is brought in. We used the <URL url="http://www.zionfire.com/Crowns.html">Redeemer King crown, because we have access to the throne of grace by the redemption bought for us by the blood of the Redeemer, Jesus. Then, as the dance continues, the <URL url="http://www.zionfire.com/KingJesus.html">King Jesus banner is processed and positioned at center front.

At this point the two dancers are joined by the 3rd (who had just posted the crown brought in). The three dancers take the celebration streamers, join the sticks in the center, and form a pinwheel formation with the streamers stretched out overhead. As they rotate, the image is one of the believers walking under the canopy of the Father's favor.

On the final choruses, the dancers move the streamers out to sides and center of the congregation, and then come back in and join for a final pinwheel formation. The piece ends with all dancers facing the banner (which is center front) with streamers stretched overhead and lifting in honor to the King.

We did this with a small team of 4, with one dancer doing double duty as crown bearer before joining the final streamer choreography. More dancers could be easily added into this blocking plan if there was sufficient space and personnel available.
