Our small Iowa town had an Arts Council team one time. I got to see just
the beginning of the dance team's workshop. One of the things they started
out with was having two kids join hands and "create a shape" with their
bodies. Then one at a time other kids inserted their "body shapes" into
the negative shapes (empty spaces) that were left. They had a great time
creating a very complicated group shape.
