Christian dancers, keep your passion in dancing for Jesus!

Welcome to the unofficial blog of the Creative Dance Ministry of Glad Tidings Petaling Jaya. We are a group of ordinary yet beautiful (in God's eyes, at least :P) people who just simply love to worship the Lord in dance and the arts. As we share our ministry journey here in our own simple ways, we hope all
who visit will be blessed and inspired.

Synchronized Swimming - Art in Water

Synchronized swimming (used to be known as water ballet) is also one of the most popular artistic sports in the Olympics. It is a hybrid of swimming, gymnastics and dance which is done in duets, teams or combos. Exceptional breath control underwater and rhythmic precision are some of the requirements. First introduced in Canada in the 1900s, it was first demonstrated in 1952 and incorporated as a Summer Olympic sports item in 1984. Olympic and World Championships are currently not open to men, but they can take part in other competitions beyond that.

Above is an Olympics program by the Russian team at Athens. As in many other sports and performing arts, the Russians are precise to the hilt.
