KIBO Dances the Virginia Reel! For this dance program, we programmed a series of “figures” (circle with your partner, do-si-do, etc) individually, then linked them together into one long program separated by Wait for Clap blocks. This way the KIBO robots stayed synchronized; it also represented the role of the “caller” in this type of folk dance, who tells the dancers when to start each figure.

Here are images of the program sections:
