Music at Normandale
At Normandale music is central to our worship. Music is an expression of praise, prayer, contemplation, and reflection that connects us more deeply with each other and with God. Divine connection can be found in the alternating sounds and silence of music, especially when experienced together. Explore and participate in a choir or ensemble and share your gifts with us, or join us at one of our monthly concerts.

Liturgical Dance Group
Are you a dancer who wants to share your gift during worship? Liturgical dance in our community brings beauty and movement to the worship experience in ways that we cannot accomplish otherwise. Normandale's Liturgical Dance group welcomes dancers of any age to help lead worship through movement. The Liturgical Dance group dances in worship four times throughout the year. Rehearsals are accomplished in a combination of initial, one-time workshops where the dance is learned and weekly follow-up rehearsals where the dance will be touched up and mastered. The workshops are currently scheduled for Sundays, October 15, December 10, February 11, March 11, and April 8 from 1:00-3:00pm. Weekly run-through rehearsals will be held on Wednesdays following workshops until the date of the dance in worship from 5:00-5:30 pm. Rehearsals and choreography are under the direction of Colleen Lindstrom who holds a BA in Dance from Gustavus Adolphus College. As the Liturgical Dance program does not currently include technique classes and frequently requires the dancers to have the ability to quickly pick up movement and choreography, enrollment in an outside dance program with classes a minimum of once a week is required.
If interested in sharing your gift of dance with the Liturgical Dance group, and would like more information, including a rehearsal schedule, please contact Colleen Lindstrom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
