After making kidush levana there is a custom to dance and sing a song "Tovim meorot...". Is it permissible to dance after kidush levana of the month of Iyar, as it falls during the mourning days of sefiras haomer?

Inspired by this question.

From Halachaicly Speaking : One is permitted to dance after kiddush levana even during sefira (Piskei Shmuos quoting the opinion of Harav D’bilitsky Shlita)

Is this only on Motza"sh or also during the week? – Double AA Apr 29 '12 at 1:43
It seems the whole week,because it is a mitzvah – sam Apr 29 '12 at 1:47

@sam, thanks, and jutky's edited it into your answer. (In the future, generally, if someone asks for more information in a comment, he means for it to be added to the answer, where it belongs.) – msh210 Apr 29 '12 at 18:06
