Doing The Twist

Let’s get together and do The Twist
Don’t really need a partner for this
Get yourself loose, don’t be uptight
For tonight it is time to dance all night
Twist your body to the left, too the right
Shake, pivot a foot; you are doing great
Shake your arms as you twist
Don’t have your hands in a fist
Follow the song to “Twist and Shout”
Keep on dancing till lights go out

April 17th prompt: Write a poem about a dance fad. Wikipedia lists more than 90 dance fads: as old as the hokey pokey, as 1960s as the twist, as bad as the line dance to “Achy Breaky Heart” and as 21st century as “Gangnam Style.” Surely you can find one you can write about – even if you can’t dance.


Would You Dance With Me Beneath The Stars?

Would you come dance with me beneath the stars?
We will tango around the moon;
Then swing dance from star to star;
As we waltz down the stardust trails;
Follow the stars as they line kick as one
Then tap dance beneath their lights
As we samba our way home
With the moon applauding for an encore.
