Race for the Cure Haikus

As mentioned previously, I am team captain for our Race for the Cure team, Bellydancers Shimmy for the Cure. For the past 3 years our troupe has performed at this event as well. At our last rehearsal we were discussing the staging of our number and someone said the groups were 5, 7 and 5. Oh, like a haiku!
So of course we had to write some. Here they are in no particular order.

walk, run, dance, do it
I cannot breathe through this veil
Time to go one, NOW!

five k or short walk
ok if we're stinky? ick
we will do our best

hipscarves will be on
raqs africa is the bomb
shimmy for a cure

Fierce flair warriors
African dance moves, double
head rolls, my neck hurts

United we dance
to entertain and support
where is my lipstick??

We sparkle and shine
With a shimmy and a shake
Have another Crunk!!!

we, many will dance,
from the heart for others' lives.
we will not quiet.

Seventeen dancers,
Stage is collapsing - OH NO!
Hey Y'all Look at us

And a bonus in Iambic Pentameter

To dance on stage with friends, it is a gift
Until the underpinnings start to shift
We'll arabesque and spin and pop and lock
And show the crowd how fun it is to rak
