The Origin and Purpose of Prisma Dance –
Prisma is Latin for the English word prism. In 2007, the Lord gave Nicole Lam the picture (image) of a prism to represent a dancer’s heart and body as she/he worships and glorifies the Lord. For a prism (dancer) to fulfill its intended purpose it must be pure and transparent before the Lord – a right heart before God. A prism by itself is nothing, but when pure white light, representing the Holy Spirit, penetrates and illuminates the prism, the prism reflects the glory of its creator. White light, the Holy Spirit, uses a prism as a vehicle to reveal its splendor through a radiant spectrum of colors – each serving its own purpose in worshipping and magnifying Him. Being a prism and reflecting the glory of the Lord is the heart and purpose of Prisma Dance.
