1- Synchronized dance teams are obviously made up of very
2- A major part of the entertaining element of watching
several people do the exact same moves together is the fact
that they're all moving at the same time.
3- Bad dancing, we're talking "drunk-uncle-at-the-wedding"
dancing would be just as hard to choreograph and have an
entire group perform in exact perfect lock step.
The routine would start with say, 7 dancers. The first 6
display one amazing dance move one at a time. Then they'd
come do the odd dancer, dancer number 7. This dancer
appear to have no experience dancing, indeed, no sense of
rhythm whatsoever as they engage in a horrible, even
embarrassing series of awkward arm swings, off time hip
movements etc while being scrutinized by the other dancers
who are horrified by what they see.
But then here's the twist, one steps up and copies perfectly
these awkward moves. The rest of the troupe joins in one by
one until they're all doing a series of moves that exactly
duplicate the non-dancer's moves. They all kind of laugh at
the person's expense but he keeps on dancing, not caring,
enjoying himself and the music.
Then one dancer steps up to the odd man out and in mime,
says "Hey pal, let me show you a move you can try." It's a
pretty standard one, but it's impressive when perfected. The
odd man out nods his head and tries it. Perfection. He
and says "Thanks man!" (wordlessly of course). This is
with the other 5 dancers until the new guy has copied each
move perfectly. Then the music reaches a crescendo...
The experienced dancers all stand back and watch. The
"new" guy launches into the most amazing dance routine
they've all ever seen, each move he's just learned executed
perfectly. They all cheer and clap (as hopefully the audience
is doing at this point as well) and for the finale, them dance
into a human pyramid and gesture to the new guy who from
the far end of the stage does a series of somersaults and
flips and scaled the human pyramid being carried like a
conquering hero off the stage waving at everybody as they
