I like to sometimes have a little dance in the kitchen, sometimes even combining this with doing the dishes. (I read that Jimi Hendrix would be playing his guitar while he was doing the dishes). It is more fun to dance with other people though. I think line dancing and the Time Warp and the Nutbush are great as you don't have to have a partner and people can get up and try without having to get too serious. What is also great is the old time barn dance where all the guys get to dance with all of the girls and not for so long that it gets awkward thinking of things to say, plus who knows romance might be in the air for the swinging singles.


That’s Dancing
(Bruce Pumpa)

Do it in the kitchen
Do it in the hall
Some people do it with their backs against the wall
That’s dancing, that’s dancing

While you do the dishes
While you mop the floor
Do it on one leg
But be careful you don’t fall
That’s dancing, that’s dancing

Do it arm in arm
Do it holding hands
While you’re at the beach, you could waltz across the sands
That’s dancing, that’s dancing

Do it in the garden
For everyone to see
If too many people watch you
You could charge a fee
That’s dancing, that’s dancing

(Piano solo)

Do it in the park
While you’re walking your dog Rover
Play some Sergio Mendez, and do the Bossa Nova
That’s dancing, that’s dancing

While you’re at the Disco
See if you can jolt her
Out of her complacency
As you do the John Travolta
That’s dancing, that’s dancing

(Guitar solo)

They’re doing it in France
And over there in Sweden
Though sometimes they’re not sure, just who it is who’s leadin’
That’s dancing, that’s dancing

All around the World
People love their dancing
It’s great for making friends,
Even better for romancing
That’s dancing, that’s dancing
That’s dancing, that’s dancing
