Cabbage Patch Dance

The cabbage patch dance is a dance involving putting the hands together in the form of fists and moving them in a horizontal, circular motion. The Gucci Crew II had a song describing the dance, as well as Dr. Dre and DJ Yella (of the rap group N.W.A.) in 1987. The dance they made was featured in the song "The Cabbage Patch." It soon became very popular, showing up in many dance clubs in America.

The dance's name is derived from the popular line of dolls "The Cabbage Patch Kids".

Famous quotes containing the words dance, cabbage and/or patch:

    Is that dance slowing in the mind of man
    That made him think the universe could hum?
    Theodore Roethke (1908–1963)

    All his happier dreams came true
    A small old house, wife, daughter, son,
    Grounds where plum and cabbage grew,
    Poets and Wits about him drew;
    “What then?”sang Plato’s ghost, “what then?”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I sing a hero’s head, large eye
    And bearded bronze, but not a man,

    Although I patch him as I can
    And reach through him almost to man.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
