The inspiration for King David’s Dance comes from the second book of Samuel, chapter 7: “And David Danced before the Lord with all his might.”

The frenzied dance is an eclectic mix of contemporary, jazz and pop elements, including syncopated dance rhythms, melodic riffs, call and response, and a shout chorus.
