Dancing and the Bible

 The children of Israel danced around and worshipped the golden calf they asked Aaron to make while Moses was on Mount Sinai receiving the Ten Commandments and God’s covenant. That, of course, was not approved. "When Moses approached the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, his anger burned and he threw the tablets out of his hands, breaking them to pieces at the foot of the mountain." Exodus 32:19 NIV

Women danced to celebrate one of King David’s victories. "When the men were returning home after David had killed the Philistine, the women came out from all the towns of Israel to meet King Saul with singing and dancing, with joyful songs and with tambourines and lutes." 1 Samuel 18:6 NIV

In what was apparently an act of worship to God, David himself danced before the ark of the covenant. "David, wearing a linen ephod, danced before the LORD with all his might, while he and the entire house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouts and the sound of trumpets. As the ark of the LORD was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David leaping and dancing before the LORD, she despised him in her heart." 2 Samuel 6:14-16 NIV

The psalms speak of praising God through dance. "Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with tambourine and harp." Psalms 149:3 NIV "praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute," Psalms 150:4 NIV

Solomon wrote that there is a time for almost everything. He includes a “time for dancing,” in contrast to a “time for mourning.” a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance," Ecclesiastes 3:4 NIV

The dancing of Herodias’ daughter before Herod so affected the old monarch that he offered her anything she wanted—up to half his kingdom. That dance cost John the Baptist his head. "On Herod's birthday the daughter of Herodias danced for them and pleased Herod so much that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she asked. Prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist." Matthew 14:6 NIV

Galatians 5 provides a listing of the “works of the flesh,” which condemns what is variously translated “lewdness” or “lasciviousness” or “licentiousness.” These words connote excess, absence of restraint, indecency, and unchaste, shameless behaviour. Thayer’s lexicon says these words carry the idea of “indecent bodily movements, unchaste handling of male and female.” That pretty much describes most of the modern-day dances. "The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God." Galatians 5:19-21 NIV8

Meaning of Dance

Dance (from French danser, perhaps from Frankish) is a sport and art form that generally refers to movement of the body, usually rhythmic and to music, used as a form of expression, social interaction or presented in a spiritual or performance setting. Dance is also used to describe methods of non-verbal communication between humans or animals (bee dance, patterns of behaviour such as a mating dance), motion in inanimate objects (the leaves danced in the wind), and certain musical forms or genres. In sports, gymnastics, figure skating and synchronized swimming are dance disciplines while martial arts kata are often compared to dances.

Definitions of what constitutes dance are dependent on social, cultural, aesthetic, artistic and moral constraints and range from functional movement (such as folk dance) to virtuoso techniques such as ballet. Dance can be participatory, social or performed for an audience. It can also be ceremonial, competitive or erotic. Dance movements may be without significance in themselves, such as in ballet or European folk dance, or have a gestural vocabulary/symbolic system as in many Asian dances. Dance can embody or express ideas, emotions or tell a story.

Every dance, no matter what style, has something in common. It not only involves flexibility and body movement, but also physics. If the proper physics is not taken into consideration, injuries can and are likely to occur.9
