We just want to dance - please give us a chance

Once upon a time there were some girls,

Who wanted to learn dances from all over the world,

But when the teacher was again not in, A non-dancing supply teacher had to fill in.

We were learning about African dance,

Stop leaving us cover work and give us a chance.

We don't want to "work through the questions",

We want to do fun, practical dance lessons.

This may not be a ballet school,

But a proper dance lesson would be cool!
