Can those of you less rythmically impaired tell me how to dance to this song?

Asked by rojo (15971 points ) May 5th, 2014

The song is Paul Simons Father and Daughter and I need to either figure out what/how to dance without looking too foolish or find a different song. Is it a waltz? two-step? six-step? Mambo?
Any help appreciated.

@rojo There you go. Twerking with your daughter will make a big impression.

It would make for a great memory during the toast at her wedding, for sure.

Depends. How old is your daughter?
Try this, Put your right foot in, then put your right foot and shake it all about
Then put your left foot in and put your left out and shake it all about
Do the hoke poky cause that; what it’s all about toot toot!

This is the song where the bride dances with her father?

Isn’t that usually a slow dance song? Like a waltz?

Avoiding the foolish part might be the trick, @rojo.

Not bad
Not good
I didn’t know this song, but came to dislike it after hearing it 4–5 times.

Change the song?

You could do a slowed down modified jive step easily to this song.

Yeah, I am thinking change the song is the best bet. How about
Loudon Wainwright: That’s My Daughter

or

Dylans Forever Young as performed by Joan Baez.

or The Pretenders version.
