I am awaiting an approval to hold a Spring Dance for our 3rd, 4th & 5th grade classes one evening. I have my DJ lined up, tickets ready to go (if we could have the gym that night), and now I am trying to think of some ideas of dance games the kids could play. I was also thinking of having some prizes too. This is my first dance, so any thoughts are appreciated (as always).
we usually sell snack food and glowsticks at our dances. if anyone has a video game system that has one of those dance pads you step on & a big screen kids like that too. (one of our teachers has it, can't think of the name)
fill a small kiddie pool with water and float ducks in it that they fish for with little fishing poles. I think any activities or games relating to spring events would be appropriate. Hula Hoops are always good for a game as well.
Making a positive difference one project at a time <img src=images/smilies/smile.gif>
Do you have an area dance school or a teen or an adult who would get up in front of everyone and teach some dance moves? At this age, there really isn't alot of dancing going on, or at least there wasn't at the one family dance we held for this age range. If we decide to do it again, I would love to have someone come in and teach the macarena, the electric slide, all those "party" dances. Maybe even a few of the popular moves happening right now. Could be fun.
