Another anecdote related to this topic:

The performance group I dance with does a choreographed step dance that
requires abrupt changes of direction. It was written for the birth of the
team director's daughter, and when the team members were originally learning
it, she (the daughter) was brought along to class in her crib. The crib
was set up at one end of the practice hall, opposite the kitchen, and
it became a standard part of the instructions to 'face the kitchen' or
'face the baby' at certain points during the dance. Some of the dancers
_still_ remember the dance this way, even tho' we've changed practice halls
at least twice since then, and the 'baby' has now graduated university!

Cheers,
