Davidic (Messianic) Dance is a form of worship to God.
Traditional Israeli folk dance steps are combined with Messianic Jewish,
Israeli or Christian music. The dances range from simple to more complex.
They are danced in a circle or a line. Sometimes streamers and tambourines
are used. The dances vary in tone from reverentially devotional to
