Heaven's Thoughts on Dance 

1) The Opposite of MourningDance is a Symbol of JOY!

To everything there is a season, ...a time to mourn, and a time to dance

(Ecclesiastes 3:4, NKJV)

 'LORD, be my helper!' You have turned for me my mourning into dancing

(Psalms 30:11, NKJV)


2) Dance is Worship 

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker: Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. Let them praise His name with dance; Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp. (Psalm 149:2-3, NKJV)

Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. (Psalm 150:4, KJV)

For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea. And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. And Miriam answered them, 'Sing ye to the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.' (Exodus 15:19-21, KJV)

Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the Lord with all his might, while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of trumpets (2 Samuel 6:14-15, NIV)



Dance Outside of God


1) Dance without God: 

 [Nonbelievers] send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance. They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the organ. They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave. Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways. (Job 21:11-14, KJV) 


2) Idolatry: Israel worshiping a gold calf 

And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount. (Exodus 32:19, KJV)

3) Sensual Entertainment: Herodias’ Daughter, John the Baptist beheaded 

But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod. Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask. And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger. And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her. And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison. (Matthew 14:6-10)
