Liturgical Dancing Forbidden


Notitiae (Instructions for Sacrament and Divine Worship) Vol. XI.

Dance has never constituted an essential part in the official liturgy of the Latin Church. Conciliar decisions have often condemned the religious dance, as not befitting worship, and also because it could degenerate into disorders ... hence, it is not possible to introduce something of that sort in the liturgical celebration; it would mean bringing into the liturgy one of the most desacralized and desacralizing elements; and this would mean the same as introducing an atmosphere of profanity, which would easily suggest to those present worldly places and profane situations.
