Shake, Groove, And Move: Fun Dance Games For Kids!

Written By: happycamper

Are you ready to make your dance practice even more exciting and fun? Well, you’re in luck because we’ve got a list of dance games that’ll get you shaking, grooving, and moving in no time.


Let’s dive right into the world of dance games!


Dance Freeze

Dance Freeze is an absolute blast! Here’s how it works: Turn on your favorite music and start dancing like nobody’s watching. When the music suddenly stops, freeze in the funniest, silliest, or most creative dance pose you can think of. The person with the best freeze gets a point. Keep the game going and see who can earn the most points by the end of the song!


kids dancingSimon Says: Dance Edition

You probably know Simon Says as a classic game, but why not give it a dance twist? Choose one person to be “Simon” and take turns giving dance commands. For example, “Simon says hop on one foot,” or “Simon says twirl like a ballerina.” But here’s the catch: If Simon doesn’t say “Simon says” before the command, and you still do it, you’re out! The last dancer remaining becomes the next Simon.


Dance Relay Race

Create a dance relay race in your backyard or living room. Set up a starting line and a finish line. Each dancer takes a turn to perform a dance move before passing the imaginary baton to the next dancer. You can use a scarf or a small object as a pretend baton. The first team to finish the relay wins!


Dance Twister

Have you played Twister before? Well, why not give it a dancey twist? Set up the Twister mat and take turns spinning the spinner to see which hand or foot goes where. The catch is that you have to do a dance move in the position you land on. Can you do a pirouette with your left hand on green and your right foot on red? It’s a hilarious game that’ll have you bending and twisting in all sorts of wacky ways!


kids dancingDance Battle Royale

If you’ve ever watched dance competitions, you’ll love this game! Split into two teams or go solo and take turns challenging each other to dance battles. Each dancer or team gets a short time to showcase their coolest moves. The audience (your friends and family) cheers for their favorite dancers, and the loudest cheers determine the winner. Get ready to bring the house down!

We hope you enjoy this world of fun dance games to keep you moving, laughing, and having a blast. Dance games are a fantastic way to sharpen your dancing skills while enjoying some quality time with friends and family.
