WARSAW — Classical Conversations of Kosciusko County invites the community to watch the premiere of “The Riot and the Dance: Water” in a home drive-in theater atmosphere.
The film will be shown at 1010 Country Club South Drive, Warsaw, on Friday, July 17, at dusk (approximately 9:45 p.m.), or Friday, July 24, should July 17 be rained out. The venue will only accommodate 75 vehicles; those interested should arrive early to claim their spot.

This film features captivating videography and intriguing narration abut the planet’s water and life within, all from a scientific and Biblical perspective. The director, N.D. Wilson, is a best-selling author of the “100 Cupboards” trilogy as well as the “Ashtown Burials” series. The National Geographic channel has hired Wilson for his camera work and NBC’s Today Show, as well as NPR’s All Things Considered, have both featured his writings.
“Because their first film was so compelling, creative and full of delighting in God’s creation, we were excited to have the opportunity to share their latest film with our community,” said Stephanie Boyd, director of the Foundations and Essentials programs of Classical Conversations in Warsaw. The purpose of CC is to lead the home-centered education movement by equipping parents and students with the classical, time-tested tools of learning so that they can discover God and His creation, excel academically, think and reason logically, and engage with the world in profound ways.
“The Riot and the Dance: Water” is a sequel to “The Riot and the Dance: Earth.” These movies are formatted similarly to BBC documentaries, but they invite a refreshing view of the world through a biblically scientific lens. The film is narrated by Dr. Gordon Wilson, a senior fellow of natural history at New Saint Andrew’s College. He has recently written a biology textbook, “The Riot and the Dance: Foundational Biology” and writes regularly for “Answers in Genesis” magazine.
Synergy Partnerships, a Warsaw-based construction company, has partnered with CC Warsaw for this event.
“My wife and I are committed to the classical education model, rooted in a biblical worldview,” said Sam Yeiter. “When we were given the opportunity to assist in bringing ‘The Riot and the Dance’ to our community, we jumped at it.”
