Should all forms of dancing be banned in Orthodox Christian Halls and Festivals?

Personally, I see nothing wrong with modest traditional Greek folk dancing as is done in Greek Orthodox Churches.

Good question. The parish council and the priest? The hierarchs?

Frankly, I do not see anyone banning dancing of any kind.

This whole idea of banning dancing would become too delicate an issue. If people feared that they might be tapped on the shoulder and asked to leave a dance, this action might chase people away from the church permanently.

Hey, this is not a scientific poll.

But if you read the thread title, you would know that I referred to church events on church property.

Many Baptists do not think that dancing of any kind is acceptable for a Christian.

Did not some of the Church Fathers also condemn dancing?
Or was dancing related to prostitution at that time?

If you have ever watched Dancing with the Stars, whenever the judges rule a dance to be hot and sexy and fall off their chairs, that is probably dirty dancing.

If that ever happened in a festival at my parish, I'd be pretty surprised.

At our local Greek Orthodox Church, at the worker's party which follows the festival, some wild dancing occurs as the party winds down. Since the priests have left, some couples really go at it. Nobody does anything.

However, worse than dancing at church, are the movies that Hollywood continues to pump out. Movies with a PG or PG-13 rating make some Orthodox Christian grandma's and great grandma's blush. When I talked with our Greek Matriarch a few weeks ago, she said that she refuses to watch the recent movies. She finds that they lack entertainment value with all the shocking incidents portrayed.

You should read the thread on dancing in One World Orthodoxy or whatever on the less sane board.

There is a link somewhere in the rudeness thread a few pages back. Yes, I am being a lazy internetter.

My mother watches this faithfully.  Anytime I've been forced to watch it with her on visits, it's an ascetic podvig on so many levels: custody of the eyes, patient endurance of wrongs, respect for parents, etc.

I mean, I don't always conduct myself well in my parish hall, but whenever the urge to say something wildly inappropriate comes (as it does often), I can at least remind myself that I'm at church... maybe that isn't so much of an assurance anymore?

Nope.  The twerking occurred directly in front of me, and I was seated with priests.  

I've also seen married couples cuddling excessively on the line for Communion.  By excessive, I mean it was arguably the initial phase of foreplay.  But that was a different EO jurisdiction.

Sometimes, I'm scared of being in communion with you all.  Tongue

I suppose it depends on how restrictively you're defining "the passions".  Lust isn't the only one that could be aroused by dancing.

That does remind me of a joke folks used to tell about how Baptists frowned on pre-marital sex because it might lead to such carnal desires as dancing.
