7. Turn to the right
If you’ve ever encountered a church that starts off with uptempo shouting and dancing, it can be overwhelming. If you’re unprepared, feeling frustrated and embarrassed may ensue. Fortunately, praise dancing is actually a form of spiritual exercise – unlike frat-house dances like those depicted in “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” which are more about entertainment; praise dancing helps believers connect with God through movement and song.
8. Step to the left
When the song urges you to shout, start dancing to the left. Squat your knees and extend one arm out behind you as you do a forward-and-back shimmy. Repeat this head-and-shoulder sequence twice more before starting to do the main part of the dance – which begins with these steps but has many more combinations available. When finished, rotate a quarter turn left and repeat.
