There are several very important rules to follow when learning to perform the Classical Dances with Chaos Dance of Chaos as originally created by Chase and later co-choreographed with his younger sister, Kyra.
- You must have music. The performer can be anything from the early 1990’s band Black Box, the symphonic metal band Nightwish, to whomever does the Chuggington Theme Song. The two main requirements are: 1) it must have a good beat and 2) It shouldn’t make me want to attack the stereo with a baseball bat.
- If you are under 3 feet tall, you need to bring your own dance partner. This can be a plastic fake pat of butter or a doll dressed as an elephant. Or both.
- If you are over 3 feet tall, you need to incorporate a pillow into your dance.
- You must spin yourself around. And around. And around.
- This can be done as a solo, duet, or group dance.
- Some booty shaking and/or bouncing must be added.
- Stomping your feet is encouraged.
- But then you must spin yourself around. And around. And around.
- If you don’t fall at least once, your spinning speed is either too slow, or the duration is too short.
- If you fall, you must get up and spin some more.
- If you are doing the duet with your sister, you must ruin this carefree, happy dance by either knocking her over, or removing her “dance partner” from her grasp so she cries. Or both.*
Here is a video performed by the co-creators of the Classical Dances with Chaos Dance of Chaos exhibiting the proper technique and execution of this complicated and dizzying dance style.
*If this final part is added to the dance, instead of applause and cheering at the end of your dance, you could be placed into a Time Out by your Mimi for Being A Punk to Your Sister. It is a risky move few will attempt.
