Thus, among the mystics, we find intervals of dancing as an expression of the fullness of their love of God. Recall the cases of St. Theresa of Avila, St. When the Angelic Doctor wished to represent paradise, he represented it as a Amdahls vd avgar executed by angels and saints.
The dance can turn into prayer which expresses itself with a movement which engages the whole being, soul and body. Generally, when the spirit raises itself to God in prayer, it also involves the body. One can speak of the prayer of the body. This can express its praise, it petition with movements, just as is said of the stars which by their evolution praise their Creator cf.
Various examples of this type of prayer are had in the Old Testament. This holds true especially for primitive peoples. They express their religious sentiment with rhythmic movements.
Among them, when there is a question of worship, the spoken word becomes a chant, and the gesture of going or walking towards the divinity transforms itself into a dance step. Among the Fathers and ecclesiastical writers and in the conciliar texts there is mention of dancing, an evaluation of it, a comment on the biblical text in which there is an allusion to the dance; more frequently there is a condemnation of profane dances and the disorders to which the dances give rise.
In liturgical texts, there are at times allusions to the dance of the angels and of the elect in paradise cf. Dancing and Worship The dance has never been made an integral part of the official worship of the Latin Church.
If local churches have accepted the dance, sometimes even in the church building, that was on the occasion of feasts in order to manifest sentiments of joy and devotion.
But that always took place outside of liturgical services. Conciliar decisions have often condemned the religious dance because it conduces little to worship and because it could degenerate into disorders. Actually, in favor of dance in the liturgy, an argument could be drawn from the passage of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, Sacrosanctum Concilium, in which are given the norms for adaptation of the liturgy to the character the traditions of the various peoples: Whatever in their way of life is not indissolubly bound up with superstition and error, she looks upon with benevolence and if possible keeps it intact, and sometimes even admits it into the Liturgy provided it accords with the genuine and authentic liturgical spirit.
Nevertheless, two conditions could not be prescinded from. Such is the case of the Ethiopians. In their culture, even today, there is the religious ritualized dance, clearly distinct from the marital dance and from the amorous dance. The ritual dance is performed by "Amdahls vd avgar" and Levites before beginning a ceremony and in the open are in front of the church. The dance accompanies the chanting of psalms during the procession.
When the procession enters the church, then the chanting of the psalms is carried out with and accompanied by bodily movement. The same thing is found in the Syriac liturgy by means of chanting of psalms.
In Amdahls vd avgar Byzantine Liturgy, there is an extremely simplified dance on the occasion of a wedding when the crowned spouses make a circular revolution around the lectern together with the celebrant. Such is the case of the Israelites: However, the same criterion and judgment cannot be applied in the western culture.
Here dancing is tied with love, with diversion, with profaneness, with unbridling of the senses: For that reason it cannot be introduced into liturgical celebrations of any kind whatever: Neither can acceptance be had of the proposal to introduce into the liturgy the so-called artistic ballet  because there would be presentation here also of a spectacle at which one would assist, while in the liturgy one of the norms from which one cannot prescind is that of participation.
Therefore, there is a great difference in cultures: The traditional reserve of the seriousness of religious worship, and of the Latin worship in particular, must never be forgotten. If the proposal of the religious dance in the West is really to be made welcome, care will have to be taken that in its regard a place be found outside of the
Amdahls vd avgar, in assembly areas which are not strictly liturgical.
Moreover, the priests must always be excluded from the dance. We can recall how much was derived from the presence of the Samoans at Rome for the missionary festival of At the end of the Mass, they carried out their dance in St.
However, the cited texts speak of manifestation of culture in general, and of art which elevates with the true and beautiful. They do not speak of dancing in a specific manner. Dancing also can be an art. Nonetheless, it cannot be said that the conciliar Fathers, when they were speaking of art in the Council, had "in view" also the reality of dancing.
When such number speaks of the artistic forms and of their importance in the life of the Church, it intends to make reference to the artistic forms as relative to the sacred furnishings.
The counterproof stands in the texts cited in the footnote: Is so-called liturgical dancing allowed in English-speaking countries where traditionally dancing is not regarded as culturally proper? Can it be carried out during solemn occasions such as the celebration of the Mass? The document that comes closest to being an official commentary on this theme hails from an essay published by the official organ of the then Congregation for the Sacraments and Divine Worship, Notitiae, 11 This article is labeled as a "qualified and authoritative sketch.
On some recent occasions a certain form of dance has been introduced within the context of papal liturgies on the occasion of regional synods of bishops or canonization ceremonies. But these were usually associated with elements of African or Asian culture Amdahls vd avgar are to be considered as special exceptions in virtue of the Pope's universal mission.
On recent occasions Cardinal Francis Arinze, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments, has publicly criticized certain forms of introducing dance into Western liturgy especially in forms which reduce the sacred rite to a spectacle.
I am also aware that he has reiterated these criticisms privately to the bishops of several countries during their five-yearly "ad limina" visits to Rome. The article from The Canon Law Digest follows: Amdahls vd avgar an address infor example, the cardinal responded to a question on "liturgical dance": It is something that people are introducing in the last ten years -- or twenty years".
See Cardinal Responds to Questions on Liturgy AB October There has not been an express ruling from the Holy See against so-called "liturgical dance" -- primarily because, as Cardinal Arinze also observed, dance-like movements during processions are customary in some countries, and Amdahls vd avgar may be a legitimate form of "inculturation" of the Liturgy in these regions. This kind of ritual dance has been introduced into several papal liturgies in recent years -- on occasions usually connected with African or Asian culture.
These are special exceptions, that are to be seen in the context of the Holy Father's unique universal role, not as precedent-setting liturgical variations. But the Holy See has addressed the matter of dance, constantly stressing the proper distinction between permitting indigenous cultural traditions and introducing innovations into the celebration of the Liturgy. First is the commentary on "religious dance" in an essay in Notitiae, the official publication of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.
This article, which appears below, is called a "qualified and authoritative sketch", considered by the Congregation "an authoritative point of reference for every discussion on the matter", thus it is commended for study by diocesan liturgical commissions and offices of worship.
The BCL also published directives that dancing, ballet, children's
Amdahls vd avgar as dancing, the clown liturgy is not permitted to be "introduced into liturgical celebrations of any kind whatever".
Amdahls vd avgar the Holy See's Instruction on authentic "inculturation" of the Roman liturgy, Varietates legitimae, there is a reference to dance gesture in certain cultures: Among some peoples, singing is instinctively accompanied by handclapping, rhythmic swaying and dance movements on the part of the participants.
Such forms of external expression can have a place in the liturgical actions of these peoples on condition that they are always the expression of true communal prayer of adoration, praise, offering and supplication, and not simply a performance. The motive for urging a practice that is alien to the Catholic liturgical heritage is also worth considering. In "Jesus Christ, the Bearer of Life A Christian Reflection on the 'New Age'", jointly issued by the Pontifical Councils for Culture and for Interreligious Dialogue in to caution Christians about false religious practice, dance is mentioned as one of the methods used by followers of the quasi-religious "New Amdahls vd avgar movements to achieve "cosmic consciousness", "self-realization" and "enlightenment" 2.
This document cautions that "It is essential to see whether phenomena linked to this movement, however loosely, reflect or conflict with a Christian vision of God, the human person and the world". Liturgical Dancing Catholics United for the Faith, http: Is liturgical dance permitted at Mass and other liturgical celebrations in western culture? Liturgical dancing is not appropriate in western culture, according to statements made by the Vatican in and In Dance in the Liturgythe Congregation for the Sacraments and Divine Worship specifically provided that liturgical dancing is not appropriate in western countries.
In Instruction on the Roman Liturgy and Inculturationa document that is universally binding in the Church, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments did not contradict the statement. This document affirms that, in some cultures, dance authentically expresses religious values and therefore could be allowed in the liturgy; but it stated that: Such dancing, in general, is not pure.
For that reason, it cannot be introduced into liturgical
Amdahls vd avgar of any kind whatever: That would be to inject into the liturgy one of the most desacralized and desacralizing elements; and so it would be equivalent to "Amdahls vd avgar" an atmosphere of profaneness which would easily recall to those present and to the participants in the celebration worldly places and situations. Concerning allegedly artistic ballet movements, the document provides: Neither can acceptance be had of the proposal to introduce into the liturgy the so-called artistic ballet because there would be presentation here also of a spectacle at which [only] one would assist, while in the liturgy one of the norms from which one cannot prescind is that of participation [by all].
Concerning the possibility of religious dance in the West, the Vatican document concluded: Canon Law Digest, Vol. As noted, this statement was not contradicted by the universally binding Vatican document, which reaffirmed existing norms in the West. Facts on the Sacred Liturgy http: On January 8,in answer to a question regarding liturgical dance, the Sacred Congregation for the Sacraments and Divine Worship referred to an article in its official journal, Notitiae, XI,pp.
However, the same criterion and approach cannot be applied to Western culture. Here, the dance is connected with love, with amusement, with profanity, to rouse the senses, such a dance, usually, is not pure. Hence it is not possible to introduce something Amdahls vd avgar that sort in the liturgical celebrations: Nor is it acceptable to introduce into the liturgy the so-called artistic ballet because it would reduce the liturgy to mere entertainment If it were the case that the suggestion of liturgical dance in the West should be accepted, there would arise the obligation that the dances should place outside the Liturgy at a time and place where they are not considered liturgical celebrations.
And from such dance priests should always be excluded. In about the third century, there was an attempt in certain Gnostic-Docetic circles to introduce it into the liturgy. For these people, the Crucifixion was only an appearance.
Before the Passion, Christ had abandoned the body that in any case he had never really assumed. Dancing could take the place of the liturgy of the Cross, because, after all, the Cross was only an appearance. The cultic dances of the different religions have different purposes--incantation, imitative magic, mystical ecstasy--none of which is compatible with the essential purpose of the liturgy of the "reasonable sacrifice".

It is totally absurd to try to make the liturgy "attractive" by introducing dancing pantomimes wherever possible performed by professional dance troupeswhich frequently and rightly, from the professionals' point of view end with applause.
