decades of dance


courtly quadrille folk dance

waltzing matilda, she cancan

charlie does the charleston

c’mon baby, let’s twist

square skip your pardner

locomotion make love potion

disco dancin’, groovy prancin’

strut like king tutankhamen

play macarena on ocarina

from bebop to hip-hop,

music gonna move us!


A quadrille is a folk dance or a poem of exactly 44 words, not including title.  At dVerse Poets Pub today, we’re writing quadrilles with the word “skip”.
