ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine the archetypal movement and quality of the dance of David based on its texts and contexts in the Bible. This primarily aims to lay a foundation for the science of Christian dance theory. The discussion has developed through linguistic study on the terms Pajaz, Karar, Raqad, Sachaq to understand the structural aspects of David's movement. Also, the qualities of the movement connoted in the selected texts were analyzed by Rudolf von Laban's effort theory. To sum up, this study has demonstrated several things as follows: the form and the movement structure of the Davidic dance in the biblical description mainly consist of leaping and whirling, actively using lower part of the body. The qualities derived from the efforts has turned out his dance to be joyous and enthusiastic festival mood.
