Whatever aspect of dance you are involved in - whether this be traditional ballet, modern ballroom or contemporary dance, it is a wonderful thing to give this to God in prayer. Here we can ask that he takes our bodies and blesses others as we communicate, story tell, and convey emotions through movement.
With every movement I make
I long to be close to you.
May I leap with your joy,
May I stretch with your passion,
May I balance with your strength.
I give you my dance, as a prayer,
And as a testimony.
May my dancing tell of you love
And always point the way to you.
"May I leap with your joy"
