Praise dancing for many years taught me…well, more like forced me to be creative. I mean, how many times can one recycle an expressive movement in their dance? Since I did not have the opportunity or time to learn different forms of secular dance (not implying that this is necessary, but it can be helpful), I was forced to adopt what I call SAP into my discipline.
One thing that I am learning is to allow them to participate in the process. When I first started in Youth Ministry, there was a lot of yelling, over talking, and frustration. Not the kids mind you, but me. I would yell at them, over them, to them; just yell in every which way possible to exert authority over them.
