    Default dance rings around, waltz in

    In the sentence below, what do the words in bold mean?

    Ain't nothing Corrigan could waltz in that Lou Petrocci can't dance rings around.

    Default Re: dance rings around, waltz in

    "Waltz in" means someone appeared virtually out of nowhere and casually performed a difficult task.

    "Dance rings around" means that someone can perform a task better and with less effort than another person.

    "Michael Phelps can dance rings around Mark Spitz when it comes to swimming."
