In my years of teaching and operating a ministry, I have seen many dance ministries where God’s Anointing did not flow. This is the primary reason I always encourage praise dancers to allow God to take them through a process of purging and cleansing in mind, flesh and spirit before taking
their position on the battlefield as a dance minister. (Please note that dancers should not be considered dance ministers until at least the age of 12 or when they thoroughly understand how to dance under the Anointing). This can vary from dancer to dancer, however, age 12 is the age I have found to be when a dancer can explain to you what it means to have a relationship with God, without sounding rehearsed.
Dancing under the Anointing is about a relationship, not a taught set of movement, not strong facial expressions, nor is it repeating movement over and over to drive in the point of the message in the song. Dancing under God’s Anointing signifies that the dancer has a complete understanding of how to connect with the Holy Spirit in order to allow God to speak through them to the people. Although they may have learned choreographed movements, they will not make a spiritual impact on the audience unless the dancers know how to connect with the Holy Spirit. The people have to see and feel God’s presence when praise dancers are dancing.
