I've just take up Salsa dancing classes as a evening hobby, and wondered if it is appropriate for me to do? Would be great to hear your thoughts on this.

The only hobbies that would be incompatible with a Christian life would be things with moral overtones like watching pornography.

My daughter does pole dancing (as a form of exercise). I can't see a problem with salsa.

I didn't know watching pornography was a hobby?
While some hobbies maybe on shady ground, most are innocent enough. Pray that if it is wrong the Lord will show you.
Go and enjoy!

Well yes collecting Ouija boards or antiques...could be a problem...

Some could see yoga as a problem...


Then again it depends who you dance too....

The ancient indian's did war dances to make rain....  but it's not so much why you are dancing - but who you are dancing too...

Ancient satanic dances were used to conjure up the devil....

And dancing to the Fraggle Rock theme tune is not that safe. Depends on ones motives.

Fraggle rock is even worse ! ...

Puppets - not even human ... like - making puppets into human form...see : Fraggle Rock theme tune


I would suggest frank sinatra - human but was he a Christian ?

Should a Christian  listen to non Christian music ?

But seriously -  it all depends on the route of the dance or hobby..

Eg : how do you use it ....

Do I  use the internet for other purposes or do I use it for God ....

It all depends on my inner needs and my inner purposes ...

Where am I coming from...

As there is nothing wrong with pole dancing - but it depends on who you are dancing too and your intentions...
