Birdie on a Perch

An elimination game in which partners need to find each other quickly.
Music with the ability to start and stop it.
How To Play
All players are asked to find a partner. Upon finding a partner, the facilitator should find some way of distinguishing who is the "birdie" and who is the "perch".

The "perches" then form a circle and the "birdies" form a larger circle around them. When the music starts, the circles walk opposite of one another so that partners are no longer together the whole time.

The facilitator then stops the music and the "birdies" and "perches" need to find their corresponding partner as fast as possible. The "perch" should get down on one knee and the "birdie" should sit on the "perch's" raised knee.

The last few pairs to find one another and assume the "birdie on a perch" position are eliminated from the game.

It is helpful if the facilitator has helpers to call players out.
