Join the Coldplay Dance Party

Neat new collaboration from Coldplay and Code.org.

(Sidenote: people used to love to hate on Coldplay for being too mainstream or whatever. But I think they are great! Their 2002 album A Rush of Blood to the Head honestly rocks, as do many of their other hit singles. I mean, if you didn’t ugly snot cry while listening to The Scientist in the early aughts, were you even a thinking/feeling being?? I also really enjoy Yellow as a karaoke song, especially when performed in a really over the top cockney accent.)

Coldplay and Code.org believe in the power of computer science education for every student, in every classroom around the world. That’s why we’re teaming up to inspire students everywhere to code and dance – let’s celebrate the magic of computer science and music!

Join the party by using Code.org’s Dance Party activity to code your own choreography to Coldplay’s “Higher Power.” Get creative with classic moves, and have fun with new album-inspired visuals and dancer formations!

Post or submit your creations for Coldplay and Code.org to see, and we’ll share the best ones on social media. Plus, you’ll get a chance to win tickets to see Coldplay on tour, or a chance for your classroom to video chat with the band.

We can’t wait to see and share what you create!
