According to him, as opposed to the general belief about dance being worldly and just for entertainment, the Praise Dance Academy is a ministry that was birthed to paint the scriptures in pictures and postures through dances and artistic display. The ministry believes that dance is a spiritual activity well reckoned with by God as seen in the account of King David who danced before God in 2nd Samuel 6:14.

The ministry also believes that dance is a potent tool in offering praises to God as recorded in Psalm 149:3. As such, choreographers and dancers minister through the use of Gospel and inspirational songs, thus conveying the message to the audience through specific choreographed concept and spirit filled songs that communicates a biblical and conceptual message.

The Praise Dance Academy, Akure, which is a liturgical dance movement exists as a ministry and a company. As a ministry, her vision is to show forth the praise of God through bodily expression of adoration to God and reaching out to souls with the Gospel of dance. The platform is also a dance ministry called out to use dance as a tool of change in the body of Christ and the society at large. The dance organisation comprises of teenagers and young adults who love God, want to express themselves and pass a message through dance. Their activities also involves dance ministrations, dance outreaches, dance trainings and aerobics services for schools, churches and organisations.
