How to: Learn Messianic Dance Steps Terminology and Hand Motions for Davidic / Hebraic / Israeli Folk / Christian / Liturgical dancing

*UPDATE*  DAVIDIC DANCE TERMINOLOGY VIDEO ADDED

With more Messianics / Christians getting into Hebraic/Davidic Dance than ever before, people are curious as to what are the names and terminology of some of the steps that are done in this dance genre.  Well, New Heights is about to answer their curiosity.   I have here a copy of two documents that I think will come in handy for the people into Worship Dance.  The first is “Dance Step Terminology” which defines the step names and movements for every move in a congregational circle.  The second document is “Dance Hand Motions”, which puts on paper the prelude of motion done by the congregational dance leader before a dance move is performed.  So without further ado, here are the two documents, click on the text below to save them to your computer as a PDF or CLICK HERE to download one PDF for both (Documents from LAMB Fellowship)

    Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel
    we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested
    feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Wonderful blog by the way!
