    This sounds really cool - if the kanoun is in little sections it wouldn't be too hard to know which is your (or your group's) bit while everyone else pauses. It makes the audience look at different people too.

    I like Kashmir's idea of floor patterns. I was at a Jim Boz workshop this weekend, and one of the lightbulb moments for me when he was talking about choregraphy was: "Sometimes, all you have to do is just walk."

    Obviously not for 1:40, but maybe some proud graceful walking, in interesting patterns, them some coordinated arm movement. In one of our troupe's choreographies, for example, we pair up and walk around each other, keeping direct eye contact with our partners, then do a coordinated isolation combination, then walk away from each other, etc.

    Good luck with the recital -- good for you to have so many students who want to perform!

    I was thinking some sort of floor pattern as well. Maybe they could do a simple princess type walk and end up in a different spot to finish the dance. That way anyone in the audience taking pictures would get a chance to get good shots of all the dancers.
