Liam had his very first Disco Event. It was held after school, in the primary school hall, and it went from 4-6pm.
For weeks, he was so excited!
However, because the kid was only 4 years old, he didn’t know what a DISCO was.
Never fear my son! Mummy shall teach you all the truly important DISCO DANCE MOVES!
We practiced the classics – The Saturday Night Fever hustle! The funky chicken dance! The bus stop! The moonwalk! The twist! The swim! The mash potato! The robot!
And my personal favourite – because I am a child of the 80s and 90s – The Running Man. Oh yeah baby!
(Come on, tell me you don’t want to stand up right now and try it out, just for old time’s sake?)
Anyway, when the big night of the disco finally arrived… we stepped into the big hall and he saw the kids running wild and jumping around to the loud music… he simply said, “This isn’t a disco. This sucks!”
He was so unhappy and grouchy.
He spent a whole hour clinging to my leg, drawing circles on my skirt, growling and demanding that we go home.
Bah, all the other kids were having a fabulous time.
The Wriggly Jellyfish Dance!
Oooh I so wanted to get down there on the floor and boogie with them.
Eventually, Liam cheered up.
Gangnam Style came on, and he dashed to the middle and did his thing.
Meh. I don’t know if Gangnam Style constitutes as a “truly important” disco dance move :P
Do you remember The Running Man?
What about the MC Hammer move? The Worm? The Macarena? The Locomotion? Bananarama Venus?
What’s YOUR best move? What’s YOUR legendary disco dance? I’m having a discussion over at my Facebook Page, join me over there!
