Alexia L. Jones was in her early stages of recovery
from an addiction to powder cocaine when she
discovered the healing power of Christian-based
dance. In 1995 Jones, a former professional dancer,
began using dance as a personal, physical expression
of worship. During her private, daily process of
prayer and praise and worship of God through dance,
Jones learned that her dancing encouraged her
sobriety. Her continued abstinence from drugs was a
by product of her dancing which fostered spiritual,
physiological and psychological healing. She
credited dance, under girded by her faith in God, as
the tool that sustained her. The Beracha Dance
Institute was born out of her revelatory experiences
concerning the healing power of worshipful dance.
Jones' simple act of allowing other women to
participate in her process of worship led to the
inadvertent development of a therapeutic dance
application that proved beneficial to women in recovery.
