I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “dance (s)..(d)”.

Exodus 15:20   And Miriam the prophetess,
the sister of Aaron,
took a timbrel in her hand;
and all the women went out after her
with timbrels and with dances.

Judges 11:30  And Jephthah vowed a vow unto the LORD,
and said, If thou shalt without fail
deliver the children of Ammon into mine hands,
31. Then it shall be, that whatsoever cometh forth of the doors of my house to meet me,
when I return in peace from the children of Ammon,
shall surely be the LORD’S, and I will offer it up for a burnt offering.

Judges 11:34   And Jephthah came to Mizpeh unto his house, and, behold,
his daughter came out to meet him
with timbrels and with dances:
and she was his only child;
beside her he had neither son nor daughter.

35. And it came to pass, when he saw her,
that he rent his clothes, and said, Alas, my daughter!
thou hast brought me very low,
and thou art one of them that trouble me:
for I have opened my mouth unto the LORD, and I cannot go back.
36. And she said unto him, My father,
if thou hast opened thy mouth unto the LORD,
do to me according to that which hath proceeded out of thy mouth;
forasmuch as the LORD hath taken vengeance for thee of thine enemies,
even of the children of Ammon.
37. And she said unto her father, Let this thing be done for me:
let me alone two months, that I may go up and down upon the mountains,
and bewail my virginity, I and my fellows.

Judges 21:21   And see, and, behold, if the daughters of Shiloh come out to dance in dances,
then come ye out of the vineyards,
and catch you every man his wife of the daughters of Shiloh,
and go to the land of Benjamin.

and took them wives, according to their number, of them that danced, whom they caught:
and they went and returned unto their inheritance,
and repaired the cities,
and dwelt in them.

1 Samuel 21:11   And the servants of Achish said unto him,
Is not this David the king of the land?
did they not sing one to another of him in dances,
saying, Saul hath slain his thousands,
and David his ten thousands?

saying, Saul slew his thousands,
and David his ten thousands?

and David was girded with a linen ephod.

Ecclesiastes 3:1. To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2. A time to be born,
and a time to die;
a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3. A time to kill,
and a time to heal;
a time to break down,
and a time to build up;

Ecclesiastes 3:4   A time to weep,
and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn,
and a time to dance;

5. A time to cast away stones,
and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace,
and a time to refrain from embracing;
6. A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep,
and a time to cast away;
7. A time to rend,
and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence,
and a time to speak;
8. A time to love,
and a time to hate;

and thou shalt be built, O virgin of Israel:
thou shalt again be adorned with thy tabrets,
and shalt go forth in the dances of them that make merry.

both young men and old together:

Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt,

rejected the counsel of God against themselves,
being not baptized of him.

Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation?
and to what are they like?

Luke 7:32   They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace,
and calling one to another, and saying,
We have piped unto you,
