Algorithm March

April 12, 2008

The Algorithm March amuses me no end.

From Wikipedia:

The basic steps are as follows, repeating as necessary:

1. Bend knees, reach out straight with hands
2. Lean back hands on hips
3. Turn around, bow
4. Face right, right hand horizon sweep

5. Bend knees, breast stroke
6. Pick up from ground
7. Shake arms downwards (like you are pumping a bicycle tyre)
8. Flap arms

The dance can be performed in lines, moving canon style one at a time. After each movement, the line takes a step forward.

Of course, seeing it is better than reading about it – so here it is with Ninjas (and do keep watching for the Ninjas!).

    I could have sworn I commented on this when you first posted it. Did you delete my comment?
