Mickye Castillo is a stellar dance choreographer, director, and performer who leads a dance ministry, travels and together, with her husband, runs her business. She is currently on staff at The Potters House Church of Dallas where she has been the director of dance sense October of 1999.
Before teaming up with Bishop T.D. Jakes, Mickye lead the women’s dance ministry team at her home church for over 12 years. She was given a vision for praise dance at the age of 13 when she surrendered her life to God and formed her own company, Freedom In The Dance Ministries.
Her unique development of praise dance patterns has revolutionized live praise and worship dance with a format that allows ministers to move in unity to live music. Her choreographed pieces have showcased many styles including interpretive movement, cheer and stunts, modern, lyrical, jazz, pageantry dance and contemporary. Mickye uses many props including tambourines with streamers, ribbons, flags, veils, billows, and fabrics. There is always creative and colorful costuming and makeup for each dance piece. And together all of these elements are used to bring the Word of God to life by telling stories through dance, acting, and lyrical interpretations of music.

She has the ability to bring an artistic vision to life, an eye for detailing and a gift for sowing seeds of creativity, leadership, and confidence. Her greatest passion is to bring a dance presentation to life with technique, drama, fabrics, color, “feeling” and a lot of hard work. Her “out of the box” style of dance has opened the door for Mickye to train leaders and raise up dance teams across the country. She has held conferences and workshops throughout the United States, Caribbean and England. She teaches on topics such as, Biblical foundations on dance, leadership skills, how to have an effective dance ministry, dance technique, how to get your body fit for dance, how and why to use makeup and garments to enhance your presentations, and much more.
