Break Dance


You see them first thing when you break on through the door.
They dance.
He leads. She leads. She leads. He leads.
Years pass.
They dance still.
Forever will.
But today nobody leads.

Strobe lights???

:) No, this one is a bit more abstract.

“they dance STILL” no one moves, no one leads

Yes, apparently a contradiction. Only apparently.

However there are more clues on this page than the text of the riddle :) (hint, hint)

Light switch.

Light, and shadow

#7 Gec on 02.25.13 at 8:19 pm

Thomas, you are very close! :)

spot lights?

(n00b incoming)

Is it the sun and the moon?

As in: breaking trough the door to the “outside”
Dancing could mean the turning

eccept for the “today nobody leads”…. Is there an eclips or something?

Mr Kriesebo, you are as close as anyone could get. Really close! There is one (final?) clue near the title of the riddle.

Hmmm,this is hard! Maybe…something about a BROKEN thing? The title is BREAK dance after all…

#12 Gec on 04.04.13 at 11:01 pm

It’s near, not in, the title 😉

its the moon and the stars… the dont come out in the day?

#14 Gec on 05.20.13 at 4:54 pm

That’s close too :) but Mr Kriesebo is closer

mars and venus?

#16 Ryute on 06.26.13 at 11:06 pm

an eclipse

a solar eclipse, the moon leads the sun follows
a lunar eclipse, light from the sun its denied to the moon by earth

also, your hint near the title, the vernal and autumnal equinox, a dance of earth, moon and sun

Is it a binary star system?

#18 James Woods on 10.30.13 at 8:25 pm

It’s Sirius.

Daytime and Nighttime. Sept 23rd (the day of the original posting) is the fall equinox. So neither is more (leading) the other.

#20 Gec on 02.03.14 at 10:05 am

Yes! Finally, DesertDude figured it out. It took two years, I never thought it’d take this long. Thanks DesertDude!

Ah, of course..

And the “break” in the title points to daybreak I assume?
