In the latest Network Leaders ‘cyber-chat’ session, ICDF network coordinators reflected on some topics relating to Christian dance. Sharon shares her thoughts about a ‘new season’…
As I visit churches, teach and chat to people, I see an interest from dancers and non-dancers to dance for the Lord: to dance at home privately just for the joy of it in worship; to dance their story for the world; or to dance just because it’s in them. I see little girls dancing during worship in churches – too young to ‘know better’. I see older ones, guys and girls, dancing to the side at churches that allow it and I wish they had centre front.
I talk to ladies who tell me they dance in their imagination during worship, and I imagine the Lord able to bless His children to dance more and more around the world with His heart and His joyous, passionate freedom. Beyond just dance, I also see more people launching out artistically and with flags and banners, in inspired prayer, and with more signing to bring in the deaf community. There’s a new season starting for Christian Dance.
