Davidic Dance

Davidic Dance is a physical expression of praise, thanksgiving and  joy to Elohim  (G-d).
Hebrew word for dance is rachad (pronounced r'kad) which means to skip or leap for joy.  Some of the
dances are patterned after traditional Israeli folkdances; others are originally choreographed by Jewish
believers. They vary from very simple, repetitive steps to more complex. They are meant to be danced as
a group without any emphasis on one dancer.  The tone of the dances range from reverentially devotional
to exuberantly joyful. Dancers include men, women, teenagers and young children.  Classes are held for
all ages!          

The Worship Arts include tambourines, flags, banners, dance, songs, etc., and are used as a means of
directing our attention and worship of God.  Flags are used to exalt and magnify the name of the Lord,
exemplifying joy and victory.    
"We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in
the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests."  PS 20:5  "Moses built an altar and called it
The LORD is my Banner." EX 17:15

When we use flags in worship, we clearly and willingly identify ourselves with our God, as demonstrated in
the meaning of the word "flag" (
degel, from the Hebrew root word dagal, meaning "to flaunt").  Flags are
often referred to as "standards" or "banners" in the Bible.  God commanded the use of banners to identify
the 12 tribes (Num. 2:2 "The Israelites are to camp around the Tent of Meeting some distance from it, each
man under his standard with the banners of his family.").  He is also described as a banner for His people

ISA 5:26 He lifts up a banner for the distant nations, he whistles for those at the ends of the earth.  Here they come, swiftly and speedily!"  

ISA 11:10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be
glorious. 11 In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the remnant that is left of his people from Assyria, from Lower
Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the sea. 12 He will raise a banner for the
nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth.

Worshipping with flags can be done by anyone-individually or corporately, and spontaneously or through
choregraphed routines.
