Marlita Hill teaches artists how their faith and art thrive together in church ministry and career life. She is the author of the book series Dancers! Assume the Position. She produces a weekly podcast called The Kingdom Art Life, and she is the creator of The Kingdom Artist Initiative, a discipleship program for artists working in “secular” culture. She also runs the Artist Prayer Collective, in partnership with The Salvation Army, Hollywood, and serves as the Associate Director for Edge Project, a missions organization focused on art, culture, and faith.
She is also a working artist. She has been a dancer, teacher, and choreographer for over 20 years. Her art life started in ministry in 1993 with The Hush Company, a Los Angeles based dance ministry directed by Stacy Meadows and LaQuin Snowden. After eight years there, she went on to earn her BFA in Dance Performance and Education (Towson University, MD), co-founded a dance program at a performing arts high school in downtown Los Angeles (where she taught for seven years), and started her own dance company, Speak Hill Dance Project.
