Our tracks are a part of the Creative DTS. During this 5-month Discipleship Training School, we are excited to partner godly discipleship training with creative tracks that will leave you inspired in the areas of coffee, photography, fine art, music, film & dance depending on what track you choose. Below is information about all creative tracks in our Creative DTS.  

Barista TRACK

This track will touch upon making coffee drinks of all types, the basics of coffee roasting, running a cafe as a business and much more. We are lucky to be connected to JACU Coffee Roastery, Precious Beans Coffee Roastery as well as Lyspunktet Cafe who are all part of helping to make the Barista track a memorable experience.

photography TRACK

Come and join our photography track and learn how to photograph with excellence while discovering God’s heart for the nations. 

In addition to practical photography teaching, all students will have hands on opportunities to apply what they’ve learned by photographing locally (here in the gorgeous fjord region of Ålesund, Norway) as well as internationally while on DTS outreach. The goal of this track is to equip each student to understand their camera gear and to be able to create striking images that can be a voice for the voiceless across the globe.

Teaching can include :  Camera basics (shutter, ISO, aperture… etc.), composition for portraits, documentary photography, working with natural light, working with off camera flash, various project assignments given throughout the the year. 

fine art Track

The vision for the Fine Art track is to let the students explore what it means to do prophetic art inspired by God, how to bless others with what you create, and take time to learn new techniques and improve skills.

Teaching can include: the prophetic arts, painting, drawing, classical foundations.




The Music track focuses on songwriting & recording. Through many various assignments we want to inspire you to write songs and teach you how to produce and arrange them. YWAM Ålesund runs a KLAR Recordings Sound Studio that will assist students in their journey.

Teaching can include: song writing, recording, producing & arranging, improvising and the prophetic.



We are focusing on filmmaking rather than TV production; that’s why we choose to call the track Film instead of Video.

Teaching can include : scriptwriting, camera operating, editing in Final Cut Pro, sound, pre-production, production and post-production, movie history/analyzing movies, various assignments to make a script, and experiencing the different roles on the set.


In the Dance track, you will further your gift of dance God has given you and learn how to bless others with it. Developing your skills in choreography and working with others through godly inspiration is part of this track.

While quality is important, technique is not the main focus of this school.

Teaching can include: modern, prophetic dance, hip hop, composition, choreography, improvisation. Dance styles vary from year to year.
