THE PUN. Lee and Karen Potter live in Cedar Falls, Iowa. They built a dance floor in the basement of their home, and held a party to inaugurate the floor (and celebrate their 1st anniversary). This dance was written for the party. Hence the pun: As Cedar Falls..... Falls is really a noun, but when you put it in this structure, it becomes a verb.
THE TEASE We have numerous instances of cities in the United States that are so close to another city that they get hyphenated. Minneapolis-St. Paul, Fargo-Moorhead, Cedar Falls-Waterloo. Typically, the people who live in the first of the hyphenated cities do not want to be associated with the people who live in the second hyphenated city. And vice versa. So, I am teasing Lee and Karen by putting Waterloo in the title of the dance. Sorry, it takes longer to explain the title than to teach the dance...
