Like all cranes, this species often participates in “dances” as part of courtship rituals, as well as simply for the fun of it. That is to say, while dancing leads to monogamous pair building in adults, for youngsters it helps them to learn to develop their social skills. These dances include a series of bows, leaps, runs, and short flights. Demoiselle cranes will also pick up any objects that are within their vicinity and begin to throw them up in the air with their bills.
