Note: Step It Down: "[Shoo Turkey] begins with a stylized conversation between the leader and the group of children who stand in a line facing her. At the end of the conversation, the children turn and snake-dance through the yard, shooing the turkeys by waving their hands first to one side and then to the other. "
