Activity Introduction

Let’s have a dance party in your living room! Even if you are dancing on your own, you can learn a lot of cool new moves and jump around to catchy tunes. This lesson is a great one to repeat so that you can get better at those moves and sing along with the songs. 

Safety advice: Having lots of energy is great; make sure not to bump into each other as you move around!

Kids don’t need much encouragement when it comes to moving around to fun new tunes and will need minimal supervision for this activity. 

Ideal for: Early Learning Ages 3 – 4

Themes:

  • playtime 
  • get moving 
  • make some noise 
  • think and connect 

Time required: 30-40 minutes (activities should be 15-40 mins depending on age bracket)

Curriculum connections: Dance, Health and Physical Education, Personal and Social Capability

Tips for Parents and Carers

This is a great lesson to repeat every other day, letting your kid/s release their energy in an entertaining and educational way. 

Kid/s sometimes just stare at the screen upon first seeing a new video, so just encourage them to move about and follow the moves. You could demonstrate the movements for them, or move their arms around until they get the hang of it. After a few sessions of Dance Dance Move they will feel more confident to sing and act out some of the moves.
