Dancing

(dreams)
Dancing in your dream suggests that on some level you feel joy, happiness, and a sense of victory. If you are not in a good mood, and don’t feel very joyful, this dream may be compensatory in nature. It may be trying to balance negativity and stress that you feel in daily life. Superstition-based dream interpretation says that dreaming of dancing predicts happy times ahead. Depending on the content of this dream, it may have some sexual connotations.
