FEEL THE BEAT!: Dance Poems that Zing from Salsa to Swing




Our teacher says, “First…

Feel the beat

            in your feet,

in your heart.

            Then you start.

Take a turn.

            Soon you’ll learn

what is hot,

            what is not.

Don’t be shy.

            Come on, try.

In this class,

            show some sass.”

So I do.

            Take my cue,

take my chance.

            Salsa dance!
