Abstract

Recently, a video of Japanese students performing some truly amazing precision marching (youtu.be/R3rKGfxptXM) inspired us to ponder a very special kind of marching choreography. Our plan is to have two identical squares of marchers, each square performing the usual stunning steps. Then, the grand finale will consist of the squares being merged into one big square.
