Sat Sri Akal!

With Waheguru ji's blessing I plan to take Amrit in the future. I am wondering if I am able to continue dancing (I have a passion for hip-hop and I do not participate in any type of vulgar dancing etc.). I have never really seen any amritdhari dance (professionally or as a hobby) and I am wondering if I shouldn't pursue this anymore.

I would really be grateful if someone could answer using examples in sikhi/gubani as it's quite confusing for teenagers like myself who don't really have anyone to ask. If you know anyone else I could contact for advice that would be great as well!

Thank-you and I am looking forward to your response!

You know that we never dance to Gurbani, but there's nothing wrong with dancing itself. When you don't dance to try to seduce or entice someone, but dance for the joy of it there is no problem with dancing. Club environments can be full of some pretty heavy energy, drugs and more. So seek out environments that uplift you.

This is my belief (so don't take it literally)

There is good and bad media, with the right intention I think dancing is not bad. Be an advocate for good, our Gurbani is written in musical chapters so we should no what what good should look like. I would say don't dance to belittle your self, send a good message and make sure if lyrics are in the music you are dancing to have no sinful meanings, so you are not associated with it directly. If someone complains listen to them and try and understand why they are saying it. I had read recently from a Christian guy that there are acts of good good and good bad. I.e Naam Seva etc and good bad i.e drugs alchohol etc. because we think the later is good as it makes us feel good but have a bad consequence to us. If people object and make life difficult then do it in your own space and not publicise it. You will be strong and healthy and may be amazing with a kirpan if one day it is needed, like Ghatka as that is an art in itself and looks amazing. (Once again I am not a perfect Sikh, So apologies for any mistakes, hopefully Sangat can make me a better Sikh)Waheguru Je ka Khalsa Waheguru je ke Fateh!
