Dancing Like a Chicken

By Mary L. Bushong
1     Raymond and Rachel liked dance class. Well, most of the time they liked it. Now they were not so sure. Mrs. Lasker had just shown them a program about Native American dances. Many times Native Americans had based their dances on how animals moved. Now Mrs. Lasker wanted them to do the same thing.
 
2     "Since you do not get to see how wild animals move, watch how your pets do things," she said. "Make up a dance based on them."
 
3     When Mom came to pick them up after class, she asked how it went.
 
4     "It was fun part of the time," said Raymond, "but Mrs. Lasker wants us to make up our own dance, too."
 
5     "We're supposed to make our dance be like an animal," said Rachel, shaking her head.
 
6     "That sounds like fun," said Mom.
 
7     "I guess," said Raymond.
 
8     "But cats and dogs don't dance," said Rachel. "We don't have any other pets."
 
9     "How about the chickens?" asked Mom. "They do some pretty funny things. Why not watch some of the things they do?"
