So You Think You Can Dance?

Break Dance, that is!

We are taking part in a friendly Christmas challenge with Mr. Kirkpatrick in the UK. His students have been playing with Pivot stick figure animation, and so has Huzzah. We used Creative Commons images and music–and a bit of creativity–and voila! Christmas cheer on the dance floor! So this is a friendly exploration of creativity–not a competition like “So You Think You Can Dance”!
Below are two videos, both by Sam. One was posted to YouTube, the other to Vimeo. Can you notice a difference in quality?  Students have started to embed the videos on their blogs. Take a look at Sophie, Nicholas, Blake, Micheal G., Chelsea, Haley, Kris, Daniel C. and Max, who got their videos embedded today. The rest of the class will be loading the rest of the videos onto their blogs over the next few days.

  1. Hi Brittany,
    no, it’s not a contest–just an opportunity to share a bit of creativity with others trying the same thing. I am looking forward to seeing more finished work.

  2. Hello Ms.Smith

    Wow, can you beleive how well the videos turned out! I mean they look great, I even think mine looks pretty good for being on pivot for the first time! I am very proud of the class and I think we should maybe do more of this kind of stuff on our blogs. Thanks for letting us join in the challenge, and I bet everybody had a great time doing it too I know I did!

  3. Have really enjoyed looking at your blog – what an amount of work you have put into it. Very impressive!!
