(See more gorgeous paintings like this at Art of the Covenant!!!)
Have you ever taken the time to see what the Bible Says about dancing? I have a friend (Kyle) who did, he shared a very interesting thing that He found in the Hebrew Scriptures about dance, that was not accurately translated in our English versions in his article at New Heights Dance.
I find it very interesting that some Christian religions "outlaw" dancing not only in their meetings, but also in their lifestyles! This practice is far from what The Bible illustrates!! Now, I do understand the concern for inappropriate dance and even dance used for evil - that too is real. It is very important for us to distinguish and the difference...like everything in this life...right??!!! (Kyle will be touching on that in Part 2 of his post, so be sure to check that out too!) However, to turn away from rejoicing and worshiping in this way, because of what 'the twisted ones' have done....well...it robs His people of what is rightfully theirs! (That is, to go before The Father and worship him in unity, freedom and rejoicing with their whole being!!) It seems to me to be just another one of those nasty lies that has snuck its way into some Christian RELIGIONS.
SO instead - rejoice and be glad! Dance before your King like David danced - with passion and full admiration getting lost in His goodness, truth, mercy and grace!
