The Dancing Poetry Corner – As The Curtain Rises

I was sitting in my easy chair pondering my Week One Poem. Staring into the television screen, I had this vision of a giant golden curtain rising to the cheers of millions of Dancing With the Stars viewers. On the other side would be a rousing Opening Number performed by the entire cast. Please join me:

As The Curtain Rises

Debut of Tenth Anniversary
Season 20
Dancing With The Stars

The curtain rises to a reveal a Mandy Moore-tastic revue
A Memory Book Wall heralds the 10th Anniversary debut

The Opening, a resounding, resplendent dazzling delight
Beats of perfection to begin the magical, marvelous night

The ballroom was rocking, the atmosphere was a party feel
The cast ready to dance delivering diverse, dynamic appeal

The hosts, the judges, the audience clamored for the show
Season 20, a special, spectacular, sparkling, spirited glow

The Curtain Calls:

Curtain Call Number One
Willow and Mark – Cha-Cha-Cha

A lively delight, sophistication of youth
Sassy, refreshing, sparkling, bubbly
Effervescent like a bottle of Alka Seltzer

Curtain Call Number Two

A Shark Tank Troupe Assist

A Shark Tank attack, fabulous and fun
Cashing in with pizzazz, crispy, clean
Loaded with infectious energy and speed

A rocking out, rousing, spirited revue
Full of speed, high-stepping, disco feel
Explosive, energetic, exciting display

A shake-em-up, step-it-up showcase
Full of fun, energy, with a jive flair

24 caret golden, glamorous, glittering
A gorgeous, graceful goddess, a legend
Exquisite excellence from an exceptional lady

Fun, rough, rugged, full of charisma
A happy, snappy, hoe-down Hullabaloo

Full-on attack, as a football field of funky fun
Hippy, happy, gorgeous man flying across the floor
A smile as wide as an end-zone celebration

A flavor of flirtiness, with fantastic flair
Sweet and delicious like The Big Apple
Explosive, entertaining homage to New York

Curtain Call Number Nine

Jiggling, juicy, jubilant, jumping bean jive
Flavorful fun, a wiggly, jiggly show of speed
A Kolorful Kaliedoscope of Kicky Kamp

Curtain Call Number Ten

A true testament of courage, strength, and beauty

Standing ovation of cheers, tears, a profound moment

A vivacious vision, a dynamic, dynamite delight
Powerful, stylish, spectacular, sensational
