Dancing statistics

Want to teach about correlation, frequency distributions, sampling, standard error, and/or variance? Want to use interpretive dance? The British Psychological Society has produced four short (< 5 minutes) videos that dramatically illustrate these concepts.

And thanks to Maggie Koreth-Baker for posting a link to them on BoingBoing.
