Glorify God in the Dance was the title of both a Mo Letter and a pornographic video produced by Music with Meaning as well as a term used in the Children of God/The Family to describe nude dances performed on video camera by women, teens, and even young children for the pleasure of David Berg. The term is taken from Psalms 149:3 where it reads, "Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp".
