Let loose. Move to the beat, or way off beat, who cares?
That’s the point.
Whether you’re on a crowded, douchy, $30 cover dance floor,
Or a 1 person army, taking your living room by siege, let it all out.
Dance big. Dance loud.
Be the wackiest person in sight if you have to.
Be the wackiest person in sight if you want to.
Drown out the music with amplified moves.
Make the ground shake.
Make heads spin, while making your head spin.
Be your body’s DJ. – RSM
It goes in a circle.
The steps are the same as yesterday.
Next step, then the next step, no time to look back at the last,
engaging the minds, bodies, emotions of the dancers,
very talented, highly trained, always distracted.
Eventually all the dance floors close, and their weary feet
readily head home, trading old media for new to always stay distracted.
Easy come, easy go are the dancers’ spots in each ensemble.
Nothing is more important than dancing to them all; the next
dance they do, jazz shoes to buy, routines to learn, auditions to study for.
So for sustenance and survival, our daily shuffle comes back around. – RSM
