    go into my dance

    Is 'go into one's dance' an idiomatic expression or not? And what does it mean? Below is the context where I found it.

    (CARLOS walks with GABRIELLE on his arm. The party is filled with elegantly dressed people.)

    CARLOS: (throws his car keys at the valet) Take care of it.

    VALET: Yes, sir.

    CARLOS: There
    ’s Tanaka. Time for me to go into my dance.

    GABRIELLE: (smiles) Good luck, sweetheart. (kisses CARLOS on the cheek.)


    Thank you!

    It may mean that it is time for him to start actually dancing or some other sharade, but more likely he means 'Time for me to start acting cool."

    Thank you for the answer above..

    I have a quick question here...
    Is it a commonly used expression or just a random sentence we can interprete from the context? Thank you!

    "do my thing" would be the modern-day equivalent.
