Before dancing, it is very important to make your child do some warm up exercises so that he won’t get hurt while dancing. Use warm up moves as simple as you can such as jumping up and down, move hands on the beats of the song and make your child follow you. Once he gets warmed up, now allow him to get into the entertaining world of dancing.

Always choose fast music tracks for kids as most of the kids love fast funky tracks for dancing. Never neglect your child’s choice while lining up the playlist. You can also use popular television commercials and songs of some drama or cartoon or may be sound tracks of their favourite movie or cartoon.

Play games that involved dance moves like musical statues. It’s very similar to musical chairs; just teach some simple steps to kids like spinning, moving hands up and down, disco steps or let them move freely on music. Ask children to freeze as the music stops, those who move get eliminated and sit down for the rest of the game. The last child left dancing is the winner of the game. Give children a big space to move freely without hurting themselves.

“Follow the leader” can also be a fun filled dancing idea for kids. Choose a set of simple dance steps; give every child in the room a turn to shout instructions from the chosen steps and everybody else will do the move.
