1.  Rise Up by Lauren James:

Freedom to Dance Version:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFk8txffOkA
Youth for Christ Teaching Videos:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WGDnlnZYW4 *Note:  F2D  uses a pivot march instead of turn after jumping hand claps and after march we point up without hand sweep

2.  Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble? by Hillsong:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOvGYg0TPkA

*Note:  No billows used, however the Joy dancers can use video to learn/review the dance to the  chorus.

3.  Lastly, if you own a copy, Forever by Kari Jobe is on the 2nd disc of the 2013-14 Freedom to Dance DVD

Have fun practicing!  We are currently planning to wear all white.
