How to: The Symphony Shuffle

with one comment

You too can learn to do the Symphony Shuffle! Follow these easy step-by-step instructions and you’ll be on the FAST track to a career in arts administration!

Choose a destination; this is where you’ll find yourself in a few moments time.

1. Stand with feet facing forward, and legs shoulder-width apart.

2. Lean your head down so you can clearly see your feet.

Note: Be sure to keep your head down and your eyes on your feet at all times to ensure you don’t trip; this will also allow you to avoid caloric distractions (such as cookies and donuts) as well as any co-workers that may want to chit-chat while you’re doing the shuffle!

3. Lean forward at a 45° angle, then move your right foot forward.

4. Now, move your left foot forward, you should still be leaning at a 45° angle, as if you’re about to charge forwards.

5. Repeat steps #3 and #4 in rapid succession; try to do this as quickly as possible without running.

6. Once you’ve reached your destination, you’ve done the Symphony Shuffle!

The Symphony Shuffle will:

  1. Improve your cardio and help build muscle mass!
  2. Help you get to your sixth meeting of the day on time!
  3. Allow you to make it to the restroom and back to your desk in 30 seconds flat!

Warning: DO NOT attempt the Symphony Shuffle with heels exceeding two inches in height.

  1. I LOVE it! When I read your Symphony Shuffle – my mind immediately drifted to an oldie moldie song. Check out I think we should set up a meeting to learn steps and music to go along with your great idea! Anyone care to create a Department/Houston Symphony theme song!
