Dance Humour

Dancing is too much fun to be taken seriously, and it isn't, as this collection of dance humour may demonstrate. This is part of a deeply meaningful oral tradition (and if you believe that you'll believe anything), and like any such tradition, the names of many of the original authors have been lost in the mists of time (so you can't find out who to blame), and the jokes have been subtly changed as they have been passed from funny man to funny man. 

Light Bulb Jokes

Some of these I made up/adapted/reinvented. Others appeared on rec.folk-dancing.


How many callers does it take to change a light bulb?
Only one, he holds the bulb and the world revolves around him.


How many folk dancers does it take to change a light bulb?
One more couple!


Two: One to screw screw it in and [insert your favourite folkdance-police member here] to tell them the right way.


Only one, but you lose a lot of lightbulbs because they keep dropping them as they rush on the floor to do the dance that was just announced.


How many international folk dancers does it take to change a light bulb?
One, two. One, two, three. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven.


How many PA crew does it take to change a lightbulb?
One TWO, One TWO!
