The Would-Be Drum Majorette Move

OK, here's a move I came up with, because I was watching the classic movie musical "The Music Man" the other day:

I hoist my (admittedly very lightweight) shovelglove into the air, and march around the back yard, pretending it's a baton and I'm the beautiful blonde ponytailed drum majorette, leading the parade around town at the end of the movie!

As I march back and forth, I switch the baton from one hand to another (sometimes tossing it back and forth as in one of the Shovelglove moves you've already posted).

If it helps, you can download "76 Trombones" onto your MP3 player or phone and play it while you march (perhaps use headphones if you're marching early in the morning and have neighbors!).

It's the closest I'll ever get to becoming a real cheerleader, and yet it's strangely satisfying!

Sorry I somehow didn't see this till now.

Very evocative!

And I like the full body aspect of the marching.
