Unfortunately I have had to do my share of chicken dances in my lifetime. It looks like the twist with your arms bent like bird wings. I always try to be in the ladies room when the DJ calls " Now the Chicken Dance". I have no idea how this dance got started but lots of people just love doing it.

I remember this dance. In the south, we just said, "Dance like a Chicken." It was during the same time as "the Monkey." This reminds me of a joke that I heard today.

There was a newly married couple who were about to celebrate their first Thanksgiving together. The wife wanted to really please her husband by making a really delicious thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. ... The wife came out of the *******, with her hair all messed up, her lipstick smeared, her clothes a mess and her husband said "Honey, what happened?" Then, she said, well, I just finished plucking the turkey, then stuffing it, but you are going to have to kill it!"

Djb, I think I would start with the dance police. Have you ever seen a dance called the turkey trot? Isn't it funny how many dances have the name of an animal in it?

LOL...that was played at the last wedding I went to. I have to admit...I had a lot of fun doing it (GASP). I think it is so easy...everyone can do it, gets the old and very young on the dance floor.
Actually, I'm having a Oktoberfest theme for my rehearsal dinner (getting married in 2 mths) and I read that it is tradition for the chicken dance to be played there. It is a German Polka. I think people either love it or hate it :D Here's a link for those of you who haven't seen it.
