According to the older, traditional Roman calendar, today is Tuesday in the Octave of Pentecost.

On this day the traditional “Dancing Procession” is performed in Echternach, Luxembourg, founded by St. Willibrord.   As bands play, the people move forward slowly in lines, holding white handkerchiefs.  They “dance” with little kicks to the left and right and thus make slow progress.

And now for some liturgical dance.  Let’s jump in and skip around within today Collect and see what we can find.  Admittedly, the Collect for Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form is a bit more solemn than the procession in the video.
