The Story: This dance is ...

The Story: This dance is inspired by how, when one has a family, things delightfully and mischievously happen when parents aren't looking. There is a game afoot where the set gets rearranged when the parents are busy. The challenge is to put it all back together.

1-8 Two of the kids turn away and run; the parents take off in pursuit.

9-16 Thinking all is in order, the parents leave together, but when they turn around they discover the kids are out of place. They scold the kids who then put themselves back in order.

17-24 Taking the kids by the hand, the parents do a normal double triangle making eye contact with the corners like any upstanding parents would do, but the kids keep moving whenever the parents let go.

25-32 The set is truly a mess. Working together, they all put it right
