Keep on Dancing – A Quadrille

Keep on Dancing

Balanced and on an even keel
Confidence returned once more
She possessed unmistakable duende
as she danced powerfully across the floor
 
The volume of the music
was turned way up high
It was impossible to keep her still
Her only limit was the sky

excluding the title

    I once remember a little five year old girl who danced that way while her daddy played in a music group! Very nice work!

      Thank you Sadje. It reminded me of that movie. I can’t remember the name but I think Irene Cara was the dancer.

    I like the steady rhythm and rhymes in your quadrille, Christine, and the image you paint of someone completely lost in the music. That’s two quadrilles about dancing in a row!
