Emily Propst Dances The Pilgrim’s Progress

An Easter Treat.

Ever since singing the chorus ‘Lord of the Dance’ when I was little, I’ve associated Easter joy with dancing, even though dance has never been a feature of my church belonging.

Christian leaves the place of deliverance after his encounter with the three Shining Ones at the cross with three leaps for joy and a song. So what better day to share a choreographed response to the story and that episode in particular.

I’ve shared some of the creative projects that students have produced for my class before. I was delighted, a few semesters ago, when Emily Propst created this video, and I am glad that she is happy to share it.  The dance shows her pilgrim’s burden loosed and her movement freed. For the class assignment students also submit a short, written commentary making the connections to Bunyan’s text and their learning explicit. As is so often the case, however, the creative project stands successfully on its own.
