Coterie means "a circle of individuals who associate with one another for a common purpose." The term's original usage referred to tenant farmers working the land of the noble or lord. At Doxa Coterie, we use the art of dance to sow gospel seeds, as far and wide as possible, knowing that the harvest belongs to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
