Making the old couples dance on the latest dance songs which have about five different steps in a minute while making the young couple dance on the old songs in which one can hardly think of any modern dance step is a new twist. However, the old songs are all about the lyrics while the new songs, ignite the long forgotten capabilities by the oldies.
