Smooth translations of ring A, #15: Dancing out of Time

A Riddle

See them dance. The have no leader. They have no music but their own
voices, nor have they studied any choreography. Each goes where he
will. But their dance is the most graceful, the most harmonious of all
dances. There are no dancers more lithe than they are. They turn and
weave so that they seem to have a single mind. This seems the least
difficult work for them. Do any dancers make greater beauty with less
effort? But they take not a single step.
