Dance Divine School of Ballet is a Christian ballet school in Ocala, Florida. Our purpose is to praise the Lord using the art of classical ballet. Our inspiration comes from Psalm 149:3, which exhorts us to "Let us praise His name with dancing." Dance Divine was founded in 1982 by Ana Jacobs in order to train classical dancers for this purpose. Each year, original ballets based on Bible stories, are choreographed, and showcased at our annual performances. These presentations use dance, drama, beautiful costumes and sets, and stunning lighting effects to bring the Bible to life in a unique uplifting of praise to our Savior. We currently train dancers from age 4 to a pre-professional level. For more information on classes you may contact Ana Jacobs at 352-629-6038 or email dancedivine90@hotmail.com. The school is located at 3290 SE 58th Ave, Ocala, Fl. 34480.

Light of Joy Ballet Company was established in 1989 as the performing group of Dance Divine School of Ballet. It is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Dancers audition for the company and perform at churches, nursing homes, prisons and community events. Light of Joy's main presentation is a Christmas ballet entitled "Emmanuel, God with Us!" The light of God's word is illuminated as we rejoice in Jesus' birth and His reason for coming. Come and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and His wonderful gift of love. This is our gift to the community.

Isaiah 61:3 - "To give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning. The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified."
