Praise Dance Wear, Dresses and Worship Dance Garments
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9
Dance is found in both the Old and New Testaments as a form of worship. The most popular example is David dancing before the Ark in 2Samuel 6:14 “And David danced before the Lord with all his might;” Dance is the physical manifestation of both the Rema (spoken) and Logos (written) word of God. When we dance before the Lord, we are allowing the Lord to use all of us to worship him. The different types of dance include praise dance, worship dance, warfare dance, and prophetic dance. If you are a dance minister, the garment that you wear to minister should reflect the type of dance, as well as the message that is being conveyed.
Worship Dance Garments and Dancewear are Essential…
And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother for glory and for beauty. And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office. Exodus 28:2-3
Dance garments are essential to those who are called to the ministry of dance. Just like a soldier would not go to war without a uniform, a dance minister should be ready to minister, in season and out of season, and in the appropriate apparel. Dance garments not only allow you to minister comfortably and modestly, but set you apart as a member of the worship team and as a leader in worship.
Dance garments are the visual representation of the message being expressed through the dancer. In addition to material, style, fit and decoration…color is a primary factor in choosing the right dress, clothing or garment for each application. Colors are very important and have scriptural significance and meaning, for example:
- Gold represents the glory and character of God
- Silver represents redemption
- White represents purity and righteousness
- Purple represents royalty
- Blue the Holy Spirit and heavenly realms,
- Green is life and prosperity.
- Red represents the blood of Jesus
Take time to study about colors, and their biblical meaning. Then, choose a garment that best reflects the message you are ministering.
