Examples of dancing in a Sentence

  1. Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani:

    Cancelling concerts is within the law... if (the government) gives permission for concerts where young men and women will be dancing together, that is not right.

  2. Carrie Ann Inaba:

    I've never had a job where I've come in every day in my entire life ! and I think' Dancing with the Stars,' what's great is, because it's live and we just judge, I show up after' The Talk.' It works out perfectly ! I couldn't have asked for a more ideal situation.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Those who can't hear the music always laugh contemptuously at the dancing stars, thinking that those dancers must be crazy. You must ignore their mocking laughter, just kick off your shoes, and keep on dancing like there is nobody watching. "You're the Dancing Queen. You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life." - as ᗅᗺᗷᗅ said it so appropriately. Never miss a chance to dance, and the last laugh will always be yours. Continuer danse, Danser étoile!

  4. Allen Ginsberg:

    No monster vibration, no snake universe hallucinations. Many tiny jeweled violet flowers along the path of a living brook that looked like Blake's illustration for a canal in grassy Eden: huge Pacific watery shore, Orlovsky dancing naked like Shiva long-haired before giant green waves, titanic cliffs that Wordsworth mentioned in his own Sublime, great yellow sun veiled with mist hanging over the planet's oceanic horizon. No harm.

  5. Julia Stiles:

    Wow, I didn’t expect that. What was supposed to be a shout out of products I like, suddenly becomes an invitation to comment on my baby, and my ability as a mother. That’s the internet for you… but also, Instagrammers: instead of writing snarky comments about a 5 week old, try dancing around your living room to a Clash record. It’s way more fun.
