Robot Dance Contest

Check out the awesome programs created during the Robot Dance Contest! The six-week series offered programmers ages 8-13 a chance to learn how to create a synchronized music and dance program for the robots to perform. At the end of each series, the best dance (judged by an impartial panel) won a prize.

Already in the contest and need help with your dance? Some dance moves have already been programmed so you can take get some ideas. The videos next to the program show Lava and Sky actually doing that dance move. See below for instructions on how to download and use these moves in your program!


Dance Moves: [more moves will be here soon!]

My House FloRida

1. Make sure you have Choregraphe downloaded on your computer. If you haven't downloaded it yet, you can do that here.
2. Click on the link for the dance move you want to download. It will automatically download a Choregraphe file.
3. Find the file on your computer. Sometimes it will be sent directly to the bottom of your web browser. Otherwise, find the "Downloads" folder on your computer or desktop. When you find the Choregraphe file, open it.
4. You'll see a notification that the Choregraphe file was made with an older version of Choregraphe; that's ok!
5. Click on the "Create" button to create a new
Choregraphe file that will work on your computer. You'll have to save it onto your computer before you open it.
Now you have the program saved on your computer! You can look at the code, tweak it, and play with it to incorporate it into your program.
6. Have fun!

1. Have both your program and the dance move open on your computer. (Both Choregraphe windows will not connect to a virtual robot; that's ok!)
2. Simply copy and paste the parts you want to use!
- You can copy and paste whole boxes or just pose marks from timeline.
- If you copy a pose mark, make sure you know where you want to put it on your timeline

ROBOTS!
