In 1997 Demetricia Pryor was injured in her job as an LVN with a Southeast Texas hospital. She was paralyzed from the waist down and many doctors told her she was unlikely to walk again.

While she was in the process of recovering, God called her to dance for him.

Her recovery was still long and painful, but with this calling she was able to regain total use of her body.

She went back to school and took social work, sign language, and dance.

Demetricia founded Unity Dancing for Jesus and her ministry is now 10 years old.

Unity Dancing for Jesus makes itself available to dance in praise of Jesus Christ at Southeast Texas churches and special events free of charge.

Unity Dancing for Jesus also makes itself available to assist Southeast Texas churches in starting their own dance and mime ministries.
