Dance of Joy, The - Balki Bartokomous (Bronson
Pinchot), a naive immigrant from the Greek Isle of Mypos on the sitcom PERFECT
STRANGERS/ABC/1986-92 would often ask his cousin/roommate Larry (Mark
Linn-Baker) if he wanted to do the "Dance of Joy" when a happy situation
presented itself ("Now we are so happy, we do the Dance of Joy!").
The dance required each partner to face one another, to grab each others
shoulders and to kick out their legs from side to side. They continued
bobbing their heads in a pecking motion alternating from one side of the
head to the other.
For the finale, one of the dancers jumped into the other's arms. While they
danced they sang Di,Di,Di, Di,Di,Di, Ha,Ha,Ha HEY!
