CREATIVE ARTS


"In the beginning, God created..."
- Genesis 1:1

We have a creative God so it's only natural that we experience and worship Him in the same way. Here you will find all the information and inspiration you need to be your best creative self! The Carolinas has a great Divisional School of the Arts program where you can pursue the following areas of interests. For more information on any of the following areas please email caitlin.allen@uss.salvationarmy.org

VISUAL ARTS

CREATIVE ARTS ENSEMBLES

The Carolinas is blessed to have 2 Advanced Divisional Creative Arts Ensembles - Lights Up! (ages 13-25) and Take One (ages 18+). Membership into both of these groups is by audition only. While you do not have to have completed one of the DSA creative arts performance tracks (Acting, Dance, Spoken Word), it is recommended you begin in these classes to develop the foundational techniques needed in the advanced ensembles.

LIGHTS UP!

Lights Up! is the Divisional Creative Arts Youth Ensemble made up of talented dancers and actors from across the North & South Carolina division, aged 13-25. They meet on DSA weekends to rehearse, and also serve as instructors for the lower DSA Acting and Dance classes.

DIVISIONAL CREATIVE ARTS (TAKE ONE)

Take One is the Divisional Adult Creative Arts Ensemble. They meet together monthly for rehearsals, and minister at a number of divisional and local events, such as Men's Camp, Women's Retreat and local Sunday Services.
