Big Fish, Little Fish

If you are of a certain age then the classic adage of ‘Big fish, little fish, cardboard box’ will need little explaining. For those of you new to class let me enlighten you. Instead of trying to explain it myself I’ll use the words of an anonymous blogger on the internet:

It is a jokey term about the type of dancing that used to happen at raves. 

Big fish, little fish means you hold your hands out in front of you as though you were a fisherman demonstrating the size of a fish. Big fish (hands far apart) little fish (hands closer together). Cardboard box is then moving your hands to a position as though you were supporting a box underneath with one hand, and had another hand on its lid. 

These movements are completed abruptly and jerkily.

So know you now. Our work here is done.
