How Dance is an act of Worship or Praise

Have you ever won at something and started…….dancing?

Whenever an individual, a group, a team, a nation wins at a milestone, a championship, a game, a war, one of the most automatic responses is to dance. This is because it is natural. To express joy over some victory usually comes out in dancing.

In the presence of God, your spirit is also compelled to present or give something to the king and dance is an appropriate and natural response. This dance for the Lord has more slower solemn movements.

Why are both forms of dance, acts of praise and worship?

Dance takes all of:

Your Mind ~ brain functions, like motor skills )
Your Body ~ all of your body parts )
Your Soul ~ feeling about the music, mood, & movements )
Your Spirit ~ the nature of you

And since you are giving all of yourself through dance to the Lord, whether victory/praise or worship, He accepts it because you kept nothing from Him. You have honored Him through the Dance.
