List Of Books On Dance

A long time ago, I promised to do a list of books on dance within christian or messianic contexts (christian dance, liturgical dance, praise dance, worship dance, davidic dance, call it what you like!).

So here it is, ordered by title.

I collect books on this subject, and I have included pretty much everything that I am aware of (I own most of them). It's important to note that the authors come from varying backgrounds and this will be reflected in their writings. Some I would not regard as theologically sound.

I'll try to keep the list updated as time goes by. A notable omission in the first version is books published by The Sharing Company. These will follow at a later date. If you know of any others, let me know and I'll add them to the list.

I have done a post on book sourcing, which you can find in the marketplace forum. If you need more information about a book (publisher, date, ISBN, etc) or are having trouble finding it, send me a PM and I'll do my best to help.

I have several of the books listed and to me the best I've read and learned from was " Rejoice - A Biblical Study Of The Dance, Debbie Roberts " I still use it after 15 years from my first read.

Thank YOU! for being apart of what GOD is doing in my LIFE for HIM!
