New fossilized footprints show humans doing Macarena 10K years earlier than we thought

New Mexico- A series of fossilized footprints found in New Mexico this week indicate that humans were doing the Macarena in North America 10,000 years earlier than previously thought.

Until now, most scientists believed early humans began doing the festive dance around 11,000 B.C. However, this discovery shows the trend is much, much older.

"We now know, early humans were performing the Macarena as early as 23,000 years ago. So now, we need to determine if the early dance is the same as our modern-day version or if it evolved over the centuries."

Forensic choreographers from across the country will meet in New Mexico this week to begin studying the patterns for signs of evolution. A full report is expected in December.
