No, that's not me. It's Judith Jamison, one of the most gifted dancers of the modern era. What is Sacred Dance?
According to Iris Stewart, author of the book "Sacred Woman, Sacred Dance: Awakening Spirituality Through Movement and Ritual"
It is becoming more and more evident, both here in the United States and around the world, that liturgical dance can help us rediscover the profound human expression that communes with and draws us closer to the power of the Spirit of the Divine. Dance is particularly timely and suitable to worship today as more and more people begin to reaffirm the human body, recovering the body-spirit connections. This is not an abstract theory, as participants can attest who see and feel the power, the majesty, and the prayerfulness of dance in the context of liturgy. The Prayer of Dance can express a deep sense of reverence, a profound participation in worship, arousing joy and union.
