Answers to the quiz (請把空白的地方反白看答案)

a slow dance = a romantic dance to slow music, so you can dance slowly with your partner. Traditionally, discos end with a slow dance: "I hate slow dances because I never have a partner!"

burn up the dance floor = to dance so well and energetically that people notice you: "John Travolta really burnt up the dance floor in Saturday Night Fever."

dance the night away = to dance all night long: "They danced the night away at the wedding."

dance cheek to cheek = have a slow, romantic dance where you put your face next to your partner's: "The happy couple danced cheek to cheek."

have a boogie = informal way of saying "have a dance": "Do you fancy a boogie at the weekend?"

it takes two to tango = expression meaning that it takes two people to do something: "Don't blame me for the mix-up. It takes two to tango, you know!"

make a song and dance about something = expression meaning that you make a big, often unnecessary fuss over something: "He made a real song and dance about choosing where to go for a day out. It's only a day, after all!"

put on your dancing shoes = to get ready to go dancing: "Come on! Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to boogie!"

strut your stuff = dance in a way that shows you to be a good dancer: "He just loves strutting his stuff down the disco!"

waltz off = to walk off somewhere as if you don't care: "When she accused him of not caring about her, he just waltzed off and left her in tears. He's completely heartless."
