Created at Romania’s Sapientia University. The YouTube channel is AlgoRythmics. Although some naysayers have expressed doubt about the choreographic expression of a quicksort, per the AlgoRythmics Facebook page, videos of both quick- and merge-sort dances will be uploaded in a few days. Stay tuned! [Thanks, Stefan!]

    We did not dance, but ‘walking’ though search and sort algorithms was something one Professor did.

    This is a great approach. Until we did the visual demonstration of the quick sort, many of us did not get it.
