Shinelle Benjamin is a former 5thgrade teacher and basketball player and now is a Senior Manager of a mega online retail store who had no prior dance experience. One attendance to a Praise Dance conference in 2016 changed her life. She has since become an anointed pageantry minister of dance who dances at her local church. She also ministers at various events with Expansion-Dance 4 Christ a ministry she is also a member of. Guided by the Holy Spirit, Shinelle delivers messages through the use of flags and streamers while ministering. She aspires to continually develop the gifts that God has blessed her with as she reaches the body of Christ to bring Glory and Honor to His name.
