Well, I have one inspired by the mating of Tetrahymena (a ciliated protozoan like a
Paramecium) called Tetrahymena Twirl, and it’s kind of nerdy. Three person (one a couple
unit) hey. I consider it intermediate - it’s a little weird in teaching but dances easily
once it starts. It’s great to a ragtime set of tunes.
There’s another called San Diego Sleigh Ride which is very easy with a figure where ones
back up under twos arch, then twos do the same, then repeat. People really like it. It has
a neighbor swing and an “active” couple swing that can be switched back and forth from 1s
to 2s. Sort of a “dorky” figure if not a dorky inspiration. Based on Nantucket Sleigh
Ride, which had no swings, as I recall.
Consider Hydrogen was written as a tribute to the late great Richard Feynman - the figures
represent atomic movement and structure. “Consider hydrogen” was one of two questions on
his Quantum Mechanics class final.
You can find them all on my website
<https://sites.google.com/site/marthawildscallsofthewild/>. Unfortunately, I can’t
figure out how to make it show up in searches - I chose the public settings, so it’s a
mystery why it keeps showing up as https.

I'm looking for dances with nerdy inspirations to add a few more choices to an
upcoming session. Skill level easy through intermediate+.
This can be dances inspired by a nerdy reason (like Jurassic Redheads or Star Trek) or
some kind of nerdy-choreography.
