Dancing: Why Study It?

  • Dancing is one of the more popular social activities in the world, from the primitive to the highly artistic “Dancing With the Stars”

  • Whether or not a Christian can participate in such is determined by God’s word, not by culture, tradition, or opinion

  • God’s word directs every aspect of our life, including entertainment and recreation

  • Dancing stimulates a person to think or act a certain way, good or bad

  • Dancing comes in different forms; not all dancing is wrong (skipping? leaping? lively movement? bob up and down?)
