Like all pantheons that rely on specific terrain types, Dance of the Aurora attempts to boost the desirability of an otherwise unappealing terrain. It requires an appropriate start and the player having more interest in Faith than whatever other bonuses may be obtained (e.g. extra Food from Deer Camps through Goddess of the Hunt).
If a civilization can make any use of extra Faith, however, a pantheon that specializes in generating absurd amounts of Faith such as this one is certainly a good choice. Combining this pantheon's benefits with those of Peter in particular will result in a LOT of Faith, due to Russia's civilization ability of obtaining extra Faith and Production from Tundra tiles. This Faith can then be invested in religious wars, the recruitment of Great People, or - after adopting Theocracy or building the Grand Master's Chapel - the purchase of military units. Wilfrid Laurier (another leader with a Tundra starting bias) can also potentially make good use of this pantheon, although Faith is not a particularly strong suit of his.
Another side-effect of the pantheon to keep in mind is that almost all your Holy Sites built in Tundra will trigger a "Splendid Holy Site Completed" Historic Moment upon completion, which gives you +3 Era Score for the first time you achieve this.
