The Lord makes us happy and we know how much we feel joy when we walk with him. There are some incidents in the bible where we notice the people of God danced for the Lord.

And as the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal Saul’s daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart.”
