Amongst the Hebrews, and other ancient people, dancing was part of a religious ritual (Exod. 32:19), but the cultic dance of David wearing only a short linen ephod as he led the Ark [[➝ ark]] to Jerusalem (2 Sam. 6:14) was deemed by his wife Michal to cheapen the royal dignity. Dancers are mentioned in the NT as welcoming the homecoming of the prodigal son (Luke 15:25), and as part of children's play (Luke 7:32), but also, more sinisterly, when the daughter of Herodias excited the guests of Herod Antipas (Mark 6:22).
