Dancing Dreams

The dream interpretation of dancing

Dancing Dreams Definition

The general dream meaning of seeing dances is joy.

Dancing dreams suggest happy times coming up ahead – there may be an undercurrent of sexual desire, lust, or intensity. This feeling may be with yourself, a friend, or even unexpected colleagues – but assess how you feel about this person before you make the assumptions.

To dream of dancing is to gain a sense of closeness and happiness in your life – try to hold onto that feeling and channelling it into the world around you. That may mean you try something different like ballet or singing, just something to mix it up.
