I'm curious what do you do with Exodus 15:20 as far as bringing in dance in public worship if Exodus 15ff speaks to public worship practices for the church?

I don't see Ex. 15 as a normative example of corporate worship. But I do see the Scripture describing the song of Exodus 15 as a worship song:
Revelation 15:3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: "Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints!
I also don't see how it s possible to avoid non-Psalter singing in pre-Davidic worship (or pre-tabernacle for that matter). If song is a commanded element of worship, it must have existed prior to the Psalter. There must have been non-Psalm singing, therefore, of which I would say that Exodus 15 is at least a type or sample.
