Sorting Algorithms as Demonstrated with Hungarian Folk Dance

We're not programmers, but we can appreciate sorting algorithms as much as anyone. Even more so when they're demonstrated through folk dance—Hungarian folk dances, to be exact. 

We kind of keeled over when we first saw this. The idea that these dancers are physicalizing different calculations was so amazing and delightful, it's a wonder more automatic reasoning procedures aren't translated like this. Dare to dream.
