From the eight-part series Dancing, comes Dancing: Lord of the Dance, a look at the spiritual significance of the art of dance. Hosted by Raoul Trujillo, the film explores the relationship between religion and dance from the perspective of Christianity, Hinduism, and the Yoruba of Nigeria. It examines cultural beliefs, which have molded traditions of both secular and sacred dance, including sects which consider dance divine and those which view dance as pagan.
