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?

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.

How to Start a Liturgical Dance Ministry at Your Church

Starting a liturgical dance ministry is an awesome mandate. It is one that is not to be taken lightly. With much prayer and resources, you can build a liturgical dance ministry that brings glory to God and that is highly successful.

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. James 1:17 says "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." This is the foundation of beginning a liturgical dance ministry. In order to be able to fully give yourself to a ministry or even a commitment, you must have a passion for it. You must know that starting a dance ministry is right for you. You will be able to articulate and teach liturgical dance from your heart.
