101 Dance Games for Children

101 Dance Games for Children

The body has a special language of its own. This book encourages children and adults to use that language and dance! The games here combine dance and play in ways that release a child's spontaneity and self-expression. Appropriate for parents, teachers, camp leaders, babysitters, and other caregivers, it is filled with simple games that the whole classroom or family- or just two people! - can play and learn from.

All players need is a willingness to have fun and experience the joys of moving and interacting with others. These noncompetitive games reward children for their involvement, encourage them to use their imaginations, and show them how to express how they feel and think - without words. The games are organized by type: meeting and greeting games, concentration games, dances that tell stories, party dances, "muscle puzzles," dances using simple props (such as balloons, fans, or cardboard boxes), and many more.


  • Creativity
  • Physical coordination
  • Self-esteem
  • Sociability
  • Self-expression
  • Each dance game contains an age guideline, an estimated time of play, and suggestions for the most appropriate type of music. The games can be played by children and adults of all ages, and are flexible enough to be used by parents and teachers in a variety of settings.
