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

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.

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…
