This is played in pairs. Stand facing your partner and clap at the same time. Now choose from one of three positions; arms in the air, arms to the left or arms to the right. Now clap in the middle again. The rhythm is clap, move arms, clap, move arms, etc. You are not trying to mirror your partner but you are moving at the same time as them. If you happen to mirror them when you throw out your arms (i.e. their arms go up when your do), clap as normal, then celebrate with a high 10, clap again and go back into throwing your arms out.
