Welcome to the hullaballoo discotheque dance video brought to you by the music library and sound recordings archives The Bird Feet: a few inches apart; they don’t move Body: you’re bent forward, facing–and close–to your partner Almost nose-to-nose Hands: you keep them on your thighs Basic movement: your head does it all: move it forward to the right, then to the left, then to the right, to the left, and so on Just keep repeating But watch out! Be sure you and your partner are bobbing to the same count, and are bobbing to the right at the same time and to the left at the same time. Otherwise–head on (nose-on) collision The Bombay Feet: turned out, as far as you can, heal to heal Body: straight; stand in front or in back of your partner Arms: outstretched, or bent at the elbows, hand out flat, palms up Movement: Bend side to side from the waist. Your partner should be doing the same, but bending to the left when you are bending to the right, and vice-versa Face partner and arch arms over head; move your head left and right as far as you can without turning it to either side The Buzzard Up from the South flies the Buzzard in which you imitate a buzzard Feet: a few inches apart; they stay in place Arms: outstretched, of course–they’re your wings Body: bent from the waist, head forward Movement: Bending one knee, then the other, alternately, you wave your arms gracefully. Up and down, up and down, sideways–in flight. There’s a sort of hula feeling to the arm motion You’re lovely Everyone falls down In Paris discotheques, where the Bostella started, most people wear practical-for-falling-on-the-floor black But the really chic ones do the wild thing: they wear–but of course–white Word of warning: cut in at your own risk!
