Dance

Skeleton dance to celebrate 5 million views!

There’s that certain Taylor Swift song – you know the one – that makes me jump up and dance. I can’t stay where I belong when that beat begins. My old bones respond to the rhythm in ways I can’t control.

You know, some of us around here were dancers in past lives. We may be past our prime, but we can still have a good time. I’m not the only one who gets wound up by Taylor Swift.

  1. Now that she knew, she could feel it in her bones—not a chill, not a conviction. Cancer, creeping murderously through her body, inch by inch. It turns out that it isn’t your heart that’s the core of you, it’s your bones, and hers were no longer on her side.

  2. Leann heard the familiar violin chords of the Dance Macabre wafting from the radio, and she turned up the volume with the remote control. It was an eerie piece of music, but she loved the dissonant chords at the beginning of the piece. It gave her the impression of goblins and witches dancing around a cauldron. This is why it was usually played on a regular basis during Halloween, and she enjoyed it immensely.

  3. No turning back now. Her name was being announced on the stage.
    All she could hear was some gibberish , ending with a shout-“Dance!!”
    Ear-splitting applause , hoots and whistles rend the air.
    Some one gave last minute tucks to the garland of plastic flowers on the enormous bun on her head.
    Then she was thrust towards the stage. The night air felt cold on her bare shoulder and she shivered . Her heart went thump-thump and mouth went dry.
    The thunder of the applause had died down and she was facing a sea of grinning faces.
    “So this is it”.She closed her eyelids heavy with makeup and waited for the music to begin.

  4. Dance and negative thoughts have a tendency to disappear. It relaxes the mind, works it, and causes the body to work. When time permits and the environment are right, it is great to let yourself go and dance. Dance takes place in several venues and is an expression of feelings.
