Stepstepstep, rock-step, spin out,
Triple-step, rock-step.

      It’s easier than it sounds–and I made it triple steps rather than single steps to fit the haiku rhythm, because that’s what you have to do on the dance floor: adapt to the rhythm. And of course you never have to spin the girl, but without that it wouldn’t be nearly as fun. 🙂
