What is liturgical dance? Psalm 149:3

Christian (Liturgical) dance is birthed out of the heart of God to express praise and worship to Him, to minister through movement to His people, and to physically speak what God is saying through the movement of the body. It is a visual expression of a relationship with the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and uses skill and emotion to communicate an experience with GOD. The primary purpose of Christian dance is to attract glory to God and not the dancer! Dance, from the beginning was intended to be a visual representation of praise, worship, celebration, adoration to the King of Kings. It is a spontaneous result of a heart that is full of joy, passion, love, desire, and even pain.

Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.~Psalm 149:3
