Now wait a minute, Cliff! It all depends on how old they are, and in what shape. The "running nekkid" doc dance is reserved for the very young who haven't yet developed any inhibitions. You'll have to figure out which age that is all by yourself.

Thirty-somethings should definitely do their dancing al fresco, to the sounds of bebop or similar noises, but with at least a modicum of restraint which includes minimal outer clothing (footwear not required). A little older and they can move up to hard or soft rock performed on their porch or patio, with
country-club casual attire. The older they get, the more restrained the dancing should be and the slower the music.

By the time they get to my age (advanced senior citizen status bordering on senility), they should be content to celebrate to a nice minuet (with clavichord accompaniment), in pajamas or the like, performed in an inner room with no windows. If you've already advised your neighbors about Robin's suggestion, you might need to dash over to their house before they do something rash.

Jack

Just to clarify, it's DOC as in documents, not DOCK as in where the ship is.
My preference in music would be something Caribbean like HOT HOT HOT!!

I think the Doc Dance is an individual thing. It's however the spirit moves you.

Cheers,

The doc dance involves a lot of spinning, dipping, and levitating. A bunch of air guitar moves works well also. At the end, you should be bouncing off the walls.

Now to do it properly, and safely, you must turn off the ceiling fan and put the dog outside.

Regards,
Thomas

As long as there are docs, there must be a dance. Soft shoe? Boogie? Hustle? Waltz? Reel or unreal? Who cares? A doc dance is a crusie line dance!
