Dance!

When I hear music, I jump to my feet.

I twirl. I whirl. I bop to the beat.
When I dance, my body sings.
I love to dance more than anything!
When I hear music, I ditch my seat. 
I shimmy like a snake that has no feet.
I soar like a hawk on open wings.
My body needs to dance more than anything.
Come on! Get up! Get off your seat.
Listen to the music. Move to the beat.
Shake and sway! Spin and swing! 
Wriggle your hips like a shimmering spring!
When I’m dancing, my body sings.
I love to dance more than anything!
