    Bellydancers, chronologically old,
    Please keep dancing and refuse to be told
    To; “Sit down and be quiet,
    Act your age and don’t riot.”
    You might wrinkle, but don’t crumple and fold!

    A teacher of Keti’s pulse8ing
    Was inspired, and so fell to debating;
    “I’ll add my own branch,
    and bring wind to the dance.”
    But she spent the whole class flatulating!

    LOL! that sounds like me - never give up, mind you I'm sure my joints are their own musical instrument at times adding to the music playing

    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)

    The dancer, Miss Isadora Duncan,
    Decided convention was bunkum.
    She refused ballet classes
    And studied Greek vases,
    And set up her schools to debunk ‘em.


    The American dancer, St.Denis,
    Was viewed as a dangerous menace.
    The Muse that she had
    Was a cigarette ad,
    But her fame spread from L.A. to Venice.


    Loie Fuller had skirts most voluminous,
    Using silks that were pretty and numerous.
    Her ‘Serpentine Dance’
    Was the rage across France,
    And she patented how to be numinous.

    A mechanic, all day drenched in oil,
    Transforms when he’s not at his toil
    And becomes a fine figure
    Of grace, joy and vigour
    When he dances his Arabic foil.

    Inanna undressed for the dead
    And Salome danced for John’s head.
    Mata Hari was hot
    Before she was shot,
    But bellydancing was not what they led.

    It was whispered at one of our shows
    “Bellydancers should only be those
    That are young, lithe and healthy,
    Long-haired, and bust wealthy.”
    - I punched the young man on the nose!

    My friends say my costumes look tattered;
    And dance leaves me worn out and shattered;
    And I think that the years
    Are affecting my ears
    ‘Cause I no longer hear myself flattered.

    A student who reached the last mile
    could not decide on a style;
    and said hell with it,
    I'll dance for a bit,
    and decide on a style in a while!

    [Please be merciful. I haven't written a limerick since required to do so in school in 1975.]
