a secret of dancing

At a simcha, (even moreso than a mundane gathering of a large group of Jews) the Shechinah is present. There is a tremendous ratzon from shamayim to entertain the ba'alei simcha and through them, the Shechinah, the dancing is a major part of this. When you realize that it isn't your energy you are dancing with, that you have the ability to become a kli, a vessel, to express this ratzon, to dance indefinitely, it is like giving feet to the Torah on Simchat Torah. And as chazal tell us, the Aron was nosei et nos'av. (the ark carried those who carried it)
