About the snowball
Three band members set up the groove, the other two hit the dance floor and demonstrate how to dance. Then the music stops.

In this way 2 becomes 4 becomes 8 becomes 16 becomes 32 becomes 64 becomes 128. Pretty soon everyone is dancing. Breaking the ice was never so easy! “Within about three minutes the entire room was, indeed, on the dancefloor.” Adelaide Advertiser.
