"Let everything that has breath praise The LORD. Praise The LORD!"  Psalm 150:6


Ralph and Mindy Seta of Messianic Dance Camps International welcome you to this site. M.D.C.I. is a Messianic Jewish dance ministry. "We have been worshiping Yeshua (Jesus The Messiah of Israel) through dance using Israeli folk dance steps set to contemporary Messianic music for over two decades. Our heart is to encourage and exhort the Sons and Daughters of Zion, with a heart of worship, to unite with The One who loves them most."  "Yet You are holy, O You who are enthroned upon the praises of Israel." Psalm 22:3

Memorial Day Weekend and Shavuot Event with Wonderful Artists!  


Shalom Worshiper! Please consider coming to Malibu California to celebrate with us this Shavuot! The theme “Worship In Battle” is one that we trust will have greater insight as the celebration progresses. Just as a bride awaits her groom, we are expectant that the Holy Spirit will manifest once again in our midst with His best gifts as we celebrate Yeshua!
Our weekend together has become full with many wonderful worship sessions, workshops, and presentations, on the beautiful Pepperdine Campus. We are thrilled to have Messianic Worship Artists, Deborah Kline and Vince Iantorno, The Lumbrosos, Lev Shelo with Corry Bell, and Jonathan Settel to lead us into the Holy of Holies with song and anointed teachings. For those of us who are gearing for the battle, Coach Ronald Finstuen from Rochester NY will instruct us in Israeli Krav Maga, as well his Pain Scale Wellness program.
Our worship dance classes will include, Israeli Dance taught by Shirley Deedon. We will have instruction in flags and tambourine so that we may prepare a special presentation to welcome the Shabbat. We will have opportunities to learn Messianic Dance from Mindy & Ralph Seta of M.D.C.I. throughout the weekend, also Nicki Tiso, Marianne Wegener and Rabbi Corey Sylvester from Temple Aviv Judea will be instructing in the dance. We will be readying ourselves for what He will be doing in our midst, as we also prepare for our Memorial Day Outreach at Malibu Bluffs Park!
Though our weekend is quite full, we do have a little free time to take in the beauty of the surroundings with a walk or run (with a partner would be nice), tennis, or just time to be alone with Yeshua.
We are planning for a beautiful Memorial Day Weekend, and may you be blessed as we worship Yeshua through dance together!
In His service,
Ralph and Mindy Seta

The First of Months with Solar Eclipse 

What an exciting time we live! We just made it through the holiday of Purim, where we saw the book of Esther unfold right before our eyes. Did you see it? Our Uncle Mordecai, played by Benjamin Netanyahu, stood up for the survival of the Jewish people. Haman was the player whom Mordecai stood up to, who was making secretive deals for their annihilation. We know that Haman was not able to follow through with his plans, bringing his entire line to destruction. The name Benjamin means "Son of my right hand", and Netanyahu "Gift from God."  Then there are also signs in the heavens; a solar eclipse tomorrow marks the half-way point in a series of blood moons. This is something new, and we believe is of Biblical proportion. Passover is in two short weeks, and we were blessed to have been asked to lead a seder (order of service) for a local church of one hundred and fifty people. We are very exited about this, because we know He is speaking to His People to awaken them. "May it be a blessed First Day of Months for you and yours, and Happy Early Passover to you!"  

Davidic Dancing Through The Land As A Prayer With The Living Stones 

We are so excited because our tour is over half filled, and we are trusting Him to continue to put this Team together as we desire to minister with the Believers and dance through the land! We are only taking one large bus so that our team will remain connected as we tour together through Israel and meet with the "Living Stones". Those who are going have committed to the LORD and received confirmation. If this is you, then you are invited to join us. Please click here for info; deposit is due. So far, who we are expected to meet to worship with include the Brekas, Danny Carmiel, the Danielis, Michael Eliyahu Ben David, Ellah Gorelik, the Hyde family, Doran Keidar, the Slater family, and the Whittens. Amazingly enough this will all happen between touring, dancing, worshiping, and ministering to Yeshua in "the land of" Eretz Israel!

Shavuot Weekend at Pepperdine Campus Malibu CA 

We believe it is apropos to have this Worship In Battle weekend over Memorial Day. Not only do we remember those who have fought to give us the freedoms which we share, but also as worship warriors we desire to follow our Warrior King Yeshua who has given us life. It is believed that Melech David was both born and also died on Shavuot. He is our example and the one we so closely can relate with as we read Scripture. King David is the consummate Worship Warrior, and a man whom The Lord sought out after His Own Heart. It is our prayer for each who attend this event, that we would ready ourselves, mind, body, and spirit, to come into the presence of the one who has sought us out; The Great King and our Messiah Yeshua! Amen and Amen!!  Memorial Weekend Messianic Dance Retreat

Married Couples Hebraic Dance Demonstrated  

This past weekend we had the honor to dance the Married Couples dance to 'Elohim' by Sue Samuel. Our friends in Las Vegas came together as Husband and Wife in a beautiful ceremony at Lev Hashem Messianic Synagogue. The wonderful couple who were married are very loving, and that made this dance a beautiful representation. We choreographed this dance for a Jewish Voice event in Phoenix several years ago. Usually we do not do "Couples" dancing, however, our desire is to lift up married couples whenever we can. There is a 'Dances' page on this site which demonstrates this dance in its entirety. http://messianicdancecamps.com/dances We hope you enjoy!! [Picture by: Kristen Arbour] 

Powerful Beginning Tambourine DVD Ready 

We received the brand new "Beginning Tambourine" DVD project yesterday. We are very happy with how this new DVD turned out. Francy did a wonderful job bringing this instructional teaching, along with the incorporation of tambourine in a choreographed dance.
We thought it was powerful because most of us do not know what the Scriptures say regarding the Tambourine. We now understand why the enemy does not want this information out, or worshipers of the Most High to incorporate the use of this ordained instrument. Children and adults of all ages love the tambourine, how much more effective will it be with the understanding. We hope you enjoy the complete Worship In Battle series! Our hope is that you use the dance, flags, tambourine, and Krav Maga defense; as arsenals for worship in the battle.   

Early Beginnings with Temple Aviv Judea  

Temple Aviv Judea (TAJ) will be celebrating its 37th anniversary this year in style. They have just purchased their very own synagogue located in Fullerton, California! Our first time going to TAJ was for their 30th anniversary celebration, with a dance camp and concert event with Jonathan Settel in Orange County. Rabbi Corey Sylvester just happens to be the cousin of Jonathan Settel, and because we had been recently ministering together with Mr. Settel, we had one of our first dance camp and concert events for TAJ's 30th. We were able to bring Messianic worship through dance to this established congregation in a greater way, and have been invited back every year since for a dance camp event. This Shabbat (January 10th) we are so happy to return once more for an afternoon 'Worship In Battle' Dance Camp tour. Just after ministering the very first time with TAJ, we as a family went on an extensive touring adventure, ministering worship through dance to over six hundred different congregations in the U.S. and abroad. We look forward to spending Shabbat with our dear friends Rabbi Corey and Hilary this weekend. Many blessings to you all!! You can see more information on where we will be on our Upcoming Dance Camp Events page. Thank you!! Enjoy below one of the songs from our new Worship In Battle #3 dance project; by Carlos Perdomo (carlosperdomoministries.com)!! It is beautiful..!!

Friends With Ted Pearce 

If you have followed our ministry for any length of time you know our affinity with the man, the musical artist, Ted Pearce. We have been blessed to minister with this man of God, also known as the "Hardest Working Messianic Artist", for the past number of years. The first time M.D.C.I. danced with Ted Pearce was at the Holy Land Experience in 2003. It is always a glorious time for us when we have an opportunity to minister together with him. Currently Ted is in Israel leading worship for the Jewish Voice tour. Ted is no stranger to Europe either, as he is the founder, and has lead many March of Life & March of Remembrance campaigns throughout the world. In Germany Ted is an ordained pastor, and would rather be addressed as 'German Shepherd'. But seriously, his music speaks for itself. One new song, "Who Has Ascended", in our estimation, has become the crowning dance of the new Worship In Battle #3 dance project.
You can visit Ted at his website, or he could visit you on his tour rounds. But either way, you need to meet! 

Experiencing A New Song With Corry Bell and Lev Shelo 

As we were being led to put together this new Worship In Battle #3 Choreographed Dance project, I was very aware that we were going to have to face the challenge of deciding what music to use. One of the big Messianic Artists, Lev Shelo with Corry Bell, had already so graciously allowed us to use their newest songs on two previous DVD sets, so I knew I could not ask them again. However, I felt a prompting from the LORD to contact Corry to see if they had anything new ready. To our surprise - and I think to hers as well, she said they were working on something new called, Or Chadash which would be perfect for Hanukkah! The translation means: "Let a new light shine over Zion. May we all be worthy of its light soon. Blessed are you, Adonai, who forms the heavenly lights."
The problem was however, that is was not ready yet - but maybe it could be....
She got back to us shortly with an unfinished track. When Ralph and I heard it (though unfinished) we almost fell over because it was so powerful! We thank Yeshua for their ministry, and conveyed to her how blessed we would be to choreograph a dance to Or Chadash and use it on the new project! We thought it would be perfect for the opening track.
The amazing news is they finished it this week and we will be using it tomorrow as we tape our new project!!
Bless His Name!!

The story behind the song: "In The Lovin' Arms"‏ 

This is a testimony from Carolyn Hyde of how one of the new songs came about. We are featuring this as one of the selected songs on our Worship In Battle #3 project. Enjoy!

The story behind  "In The Lovin' Arms": 

My parents, Arthur and Lillian Margolin (of blessed memory) rejected me for being a believer in Yeshua many years ago but my Mom always tried to bring me back to what she called "real Judaism", as I was raised in an Orthodox synagogue.  My Dad always cursed me and cursed Yeshua - he was really angry with me for years. So when my Mom passed away, it was very difficult for me.  
According to Jewish tradition, the unveiling of the headstone a year after the funeral is just as important as the funeral.  So when a year and a month passed after her funeral, I got up the nerve to call my Dad to ask when would the unveiling be.  He said they already did it - but no one even told me so I was devastated.  A few days later while walking on Mount Carmel, I yelled at G-d and asked Him, "Why didn't you take my Dad first!?"
Suddenly I saw what looked like a pure white sheet rise up in the air and it looked like it was dancing - it had a rhythm and went in and out of space!  Then the L-rd spoke to my heart and said, "She dances with me now!"  WOW!  Then I had to repent for saying that about my Dad...
Years later with barely any communication with my Dad during that time, one night I had a dream.  In the dream, I saw my Dad in the retirement home where he lived.  He was sitting next to a lady named Bethany and he saw her pass away and angels came and took her away.  Then my Dad knew that he was next, but the ones he saw coming to get him were definitely NOT angels!  The angels who had taken Bethany to Heaven returned and were standing on a nearby hill.  So my Dad looked at the approaching demons and then called out to the angels and said, "Wait, I want to go with you instead!"
But the angels said, "You can't because you didn't receive the G-d of Israel!"
Then I awoke and the L-rd told me to call my Dad right away.  I really didn't want to get cursed again and cry as usual...
But I obeyed and called my Dad and for the first time in I don't know how many years, we had a pleasant conversation.  No cursing, even when I spoke about G-d.  And my Dad even said, "I love you" - I hadn't heard him say that to me in years!  So it was an incredible time of reconciliation, praise G-d!
The next day my brother who lives next to Dad called and said he's gone.
He had a mild headache that evening and Mike took Dad home.  That's when I called him.  After that, he went to sleep and had a massive stroke.
I came out to Dad's funeral to sit shiva of course and as I was on the airplane to return home to Israel, I asked the L-rd, "Did he know You?  I have to know!"
Immediately the L-rd gave me the song "In the Lovin' Arms of the L-rd"!
G-d is so good!  I praise Him for giving me such a beautiful reconciliation with my Dad.  And I believe that both my parents had bedside experiences with the L-rd before they passed away.  
You can feel free to share this story as you teach the dance, if you like...
Much love to you,
