Ellen Chahey wrote an article about spiritual dance and highlights PSR.
Here is the excerpt regarding PSR:

"In my younger years, I studied dance. Mostly ballet, but also some modern and a form known as sacred dance that reintroduced dance into worship, where it had its place for centuries but later was banned. I even traveled to San Francisco twice to study at Pacific School of Religion, to my knowledge the only seminary where you can major in sacred dance and which built a dance studio, a beautiful one with a floor made to support the backs and legs of those who are giving them to the praise of the Almighty.In the video, every dance was sacred."
