Get ready to get down! You need a playlist, good speakers, props (if needed, see disco ball below!!!) and happy feet.
1. Try It Kids – Friendly. Make sure the music matches the intended mood, doesn’t cause awkward slow dancing or has inappropriate lyrics/meanings.
2. Fun is probably what you are going for!! Awesome music that is great for showing off each others moves to.
3. Recognizable for Sing-A-Long! Let it go, anyone?
4. Something everyone can rock to!!! I love Row, Row, Row your Boat, doesn’t mean I start bopping when I hear the catchy riff!! If you have a range of ages participating then having a few options for music would be awesome.
