Grace in Gridlock?

This isn't about notation, but it is about quality of movement, and it's too good not to post:

Romanian traffic police are receiving ballet instruction. The hope is that ballet lessons will help them direct traffic with greater grace and clarity -- which might in turn delight drivers and prevent road rage.

Here's an article from the Guardian.

Here's a video from the BBC.

And here's some CNN video of a dancing traffic cop from Providence, RI. (I'm not sure if his moves are always unambiguous, but they are very entertaining.)

Who would've thunk?!
