a groooovy, down-with-the-kids dance, often performed by the senior members of the brides family at her wedding reception.
adopted by adoloescents mocking their fathers when they have gone to the buffet.
the foundations of the dance lie in the bent knees and elbows, accompanied by the elbowing of invisible children (or dwarves) on alternate sides and stamping on the invisible little people when they are on the floor.
all to a beat, of course.
beej: woah dad, you're really killin' them all on the dancefloor. is that the funky chicken?
dad: no, son, it's called dad dancing. its just a little something i picked up from your grandad. its a family tradition and now i think you've matured enough for me to pass on the legacy.
