About Dancing in the Spirit, Foundation of Liturgical Dance 


Dancing in the Spirit, Foundation of Liturgical Dance is a blog designed as a teaching tool to answer the needs of liturgical dance ministries with Biblical foundation. My aim is to inform dance ministries of the importance of proper dance technique and to give encouragement to all liturgical dancers through the Word of God. 

Please use the already uploaded video classes to help you along in your journey.

Also, I recommended reading material from an author that I know personally that is designed to be a dance ministry tool. It will give you clear insight on what is required of a dance leader, dance minister, or praise dancer.

Read the articles, and if you like, print for your dance ministry.

What do your praise dance movements mean?

Interpreting Dance MovementsClick here to Pin this post on Pinterest. 
Just as your words have power, so does your movements. It is important to realize the power that dance possesses. It has the power to move anyone to tears, and the power to make anyone feel uncomfortable. As dancers, we have the ability to tell stories with our bodies. At times we can become silent storytellers. As liturgical dancers, we have the power to convey the message of God. We have the ability to express worship through our dance, salvation, warfare, and peace.

While dance movements can be in various combinations to interpret a song or music, there are specific movements that liturgical dancers use that have Biblical meaning.

Bow When you bow you can bend at the waist with your head down, lay prostrate, or bend on one knee in a
lunge. Also, doing a plie will express the same message as a bow. In the Bible when someone was in the bowing position it was in reverence before the Lord. To bow means to worship…

How to Start a Liturgical Dance Ministry at Your Church

To begin a dance ministry you must have a passion for giving your gift of dance to the Lord. It is He that gave you the gift of dance.

How to Create Beautiful Praise Dance Choreography

I am often asked how do you create praise dance choreography. Creating choreography to the latest song or even to your favorite song doesn't require mauling over the song for hours. It requires a few simple steps.

Remember your Dance Technique Learning dance styles such as ballet, modern, or jazz can give you ideas for simple combinations. Knowing basic to advance techniques and mixing them together can bring dynamic movements together that look polished and simple to the untrained eye. That is why I stress the importance of having a foundation of basic dance techniques so that you can build your choreography from your foundation.

If you are just beginning to dance or haven't taken a dance class in years, it's okay. There are many resources available to help you achieve the dance technique you are looking for, even from the comfort of your home. My advice is to always begin with learning ballet . Ballet will give you the foundation of flexibility, strength, and pr…
