The Evolution and Beauty of Dance

Clap your hands in rhythm,
Romper stomp to the beat.
Then step and clap together,
With happy hands and feet.

Thrust your hip to the downbeat,
Pop and lock to the boom,
Undulate to sound waves,
In the smoky, crowded room.

Rock-a-bye your princess,
Swing ‘round your little boy.
Twirl in the arms of a lover,
Move as one, embracing joy.

Turn your face to the sun,
Stretch your arms open wide,
Spin with wild abandon to
The music you hear inside.

Sway gently to the memories,
Tap softly without waiver.
The beauty of dancing is in
The celebration and the savor.
