Dancing for Joy; A Biblical Approach to Praise and Worship
by Murray Silberling
This is a wonderful book which outlines the history of Davidic Dance. It also gives practical wisdom in how to start a dance ministry and what the basic steps are. It is a an "easy read" (short book and short chapters) and great inspiration for anyone who feels/hears the Lord calling them to worship Him with "all themselves" in song.
There is something Divine about moving for God and becoming inspired to be moved BY Him in worship. These dances steps come from traditional Hebrew dances and range from simple to advanced depending on their arrangement and your stamina. :-) However, their is a place for everyone in the circle of worship, young, old, man, woman.
Our family has just discovered dance worship this year and we absolutely love it! There are also ministries out there that offer videos to help people learn. Churches of all denominations are opening their doors to this form of worship that King David himself was known for (hence the name Davidic Dance). AS the Scriptures say, David was man after God's own heart, a true worshipper, through life, study and music (singing, dancing and playing instruments). Davidic Dance is a wonderful expression of worship to The Father, together with others.
You may also find dance ministries in your local Messianic Congregations who come to churches or teach others. Not to mention their doors are always open during service times on Shabbat and visitors are welcome.

Welcome to Home Shalom!
Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!
