Dancing - Dancing.pdf by Cathy Weedman (different than the one Kirk presents but still the same conclusion)
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose...
A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up...
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down,
and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance” Eccl. 3:1
