Our ensembles of dancing undoubtedly represent a crude and grotesque attempt of material creatures to approach the celestial harmony of being placement and personality arrangement. 
Wild dancing can induce a mystic state. But instead of mystical experiences the more healthful attitude of spiritual meditation is to be found in reflective worship and in the prayer of thanksgiving. 
Dance originated in seasonal worship festivals.  Initially prayers were acted out; magical dances were nothing but dramatic prayers. Religion was danced out rather than thought out.  Many shamanesses were professional dancers.  The purely military war dances were refined and made to serve valuable social ends by Planetary Prince’s staff. 
Society, today, enjoys the benefit of a long list of useful innovations which were at first wholly military and is even indebted to war for the dance, one of the early forms of which was a military drill.
