Dance & Movement Workshop

Dance Extravaganza IX

The number nine is the symbol for Divine Completeness, meaning of finalty.

Jesus was crucified at the 9th hour.


Our soon coming King as His Bride, as a royal priesthood, as a holy nation, God’s own people

We invite each of you to join together with us, Grace and Glory Sacred Dance Ministry, physically apart, yet joined together by the powerful Holy Spirit of God.

To give thanks

To praise

To glorify

Our great God and our soon coming King.

To offer extravagant praise and worship because

The love of our Father God is extravagant,

Jesus’ offering on the cross was an extravagant offering,

and the Holy is extravagant in giving guidance, wisdom and comfort.

“Give thanks to the Lord, for His steadfast love endures forever.” 2 Chron. 5:11-14

John Michael Talbot  “Lion of Judah”   very danceable music, several albums, full of joy and reverence.

Joshua Aaron has music on YouTube:  “The Spirit and the Bride Say Come”, “Every Tribe,”  Ps. 121.  Some have pictures of Israel.

Music by miscellaneous artists:   “Alleluia #1” is one of our favorites from the past.  More:

“I Raise a Hallelujah,”  “Great Are You Lord,”  “Resurrection Song,” “10,000 Reasons,”

“Holy, Holy, Holy,”   “How  Great Thou Art”  traditional hymns.


Movement Suggestions:    Romans 12:1  “I appeal to you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.”


Movement words from scripture:    clapping, lifting holy hands, lifting faces, bowing before Him, kneeling, walking, marching in place, standing, running, skipping, holding still, waving, shouting, singing, praising, praying with hands.


Prayer hands moving up into praise position, then moving hands to adoration position.

Prayer, praise and adoration in any order.

Paula Douthett’s  Harmonics Movement Sequence:

  1. Swinging arms side to side
  2. Spiraling arms wrapping around your body
  3. The  wave–stepping forward lifting arms up then stepping back as arms swing down
  4. Rocking,  simply shifting weight side to side
  5. Spreading arms wide and “flying” around the space, think eagle flying free.


The Holy Spirit can inspire you with movements that are like your fingerprints, only you have these movements to offer to Our Lord.  He loves it when you move the way He has created you to move.
