Cheers

One little known fact about Aristophanes is when he wasn't busy writing comedies, he was also a very successful cheerleading coach at Athens High. One year, he designed a routine that won his team nationals. It went through these formations:


Formation 1


Formation 3


Formation 2

The tricky part for Aristophanes was figuring out where to put which girl. A lot of thinking goes into that sort of thing.
