Dancing is not always presented in a positive way in the Bible. The Israelites were found dancing and worshiping a golden calf. “When Moses approached the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, his anger burned and he threw the tablets out of his hands, breaking them to pieces at the foot of the mountain” (Exodus 32:19). Dancing is a mode of expression that can be used for good or for evil.
Bible verses on dancing
