Dance Because It’s good for the Body Mind & Soul
Let’s proclaim today as International Day of Dance. I just made that up, though.
Why not? God has given us the will to choose whatever we desire. So, why not declare today as a day of dance?
“A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;” – Ecclesiastes 3:4
To make it a spiritual experience, let us all dance in celebration of the feeling of Gratitude.
Why not? There’s an endless list of things for which we are grateful. Think up your list while you dance. Dance to inspiring songs to assist you even further along.
“The dance is a poem of which each movement is a word.” – Mata Hari
Though we have free will, there are always the consequences to the choices we make. Well, it seems we’re good here with dancing, for nothing bad comes out of dancing. It’s a joyous exercise.
Dancing, just like crying, and laughing is part of a larger holistic healing whole. Dancing is like a supplement for your spirit, body, and mind. Dancing has been associated with the health benefits, identified in the Dr. Axe post below.

So in honor of International Day of Dance., a holiday we just made up, because we can, let’s dance!
While shaking your groove thing, keep in mind specific things for which you are Grateful in the moment, and dance your heart out like you want to show God just how grateful you truly are.
“Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together: for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow.” – Jeremiah 31:13
This story bit may seem weird. But, I used to be in charge of the dancers on a New Orleans television dance program, back in 1977 – 78. I was a dancer too. The name of the show was Get Down, emceed by George Vennette, a local radio deejay.
I don’t know how I got this job! I’ve never aspired to be a dancer. But at the age of 17, I had a handsome Creole Cuba face. They filmed many close-ups of me on the show. I probably was selected because George Vennette had the hots for my sister Annette, though he was married, and she was snobbish with him.
This was during disco era, and everyone pretty much danced because the music was revolutionary in a sense.
Crazy dancing to synchronized couples dancing ‘the hustle’, were equally encouraged and accepted. This was during the height of Soul Train and American Bandstand’s popularity. This was in a much happier time.
Today, I no longer dance in public.
I might get arrested by the dance police. I can’t even fathom learning the new moves kids do today. I have yet to learn dances of many years gone by.
Besides, Id’ look like a damn fool, my old ass, trying to keep up.
“Never give a sword to a man who can’t dance.” – Confucius
But I’m a gangster of dance on the shower dancefloor!
That’s my new spot, where I have no inhibitions…in my wet nakedness. I love dancing in the mirror when getting dressed too. Then I’m a ‘player player’.
But no one but me gets to see me dance. In public, it might be comical. But, one day I am going to put on some skinny jeans, declare it as International Day of Dance, go to a dance bar, and show them young folks a move or two.
…Probably just make a damn fool of myself.
But they won’t know that I’m dancing in the spirit of Gratitude.
“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.” – Rabindranath Tagore
Here are upbeat music mixes for you to get your dance on, in the shower, while dressing, or anytime.
Don’t forget to dance in honor of our special holiday, and in honor of that for which you are grateful.
“If you want to release your aggression, get up and dance. That’s what rock and roll is all about.” – Chuck Berry

“Beyond Measure” (A Gospel House Mix) By DJ Spivey – 10,610 views – DJ Spivey – Published on Mar 30, 2018
“Like” My Facebook Page for More Exclusive Music! http://facebook.com/djspiveyradio I can’t believe its been nearly 3 years since my last Gospel House Mix “Blessed” was released. I’ve wanted to make a new Gospel mix for a least a year but I just couldn’t find the perfect tunes I wanted to play at that time. I really try to put these Sets together with a certain amount of flow so that the songs tell a story or at least create an uplifting and spirit filled mood. Well, I finally have those perfect songs and I think “Beyond Measure” tells that story. I stated in one of my early mixes a few years ago, how both of my late Grandmothers would take me to church as a young boy, and how I was always fixed on the bands (mainly the drummer) and those amazing soulful choirs.
