Unlike most Christians, Mormons have always loved music and dance. From the Nauvoo Brass Band to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, music has been culturally central. Hymnody incorporates some of the very first instances of Mormon cultural expression. Dancing schools were common in early Utah. The church's support for music not directed to a worship function has been slight.
