Inspired by a slice I read yesterday about dance moves in Kindergarten, I decided to observe our pre-k Friday dance party and slice about it.
Spring is in the air and energy is high in Room 1. We end every Friday with a KiDZ BoP dance party where the kids pick the songs. Today’s play list Shake It Off, Despacito, Uptown Funk, Happy, and Thunder.
Today’s dance party include a plethora of dance styles. We had head boppers, booty shakers, and coordinated back up dancers performing the impeccable dab. Rock stars with air guitars and tongues out. The uncoordinated fellows bumping into everyone and falling regularly to the floor. Two partners dancing what looked like the Night at the Roxbury skit on SNL. A few professionals with all the right moves, sways, and dips. The wanna be breakdancers, spinning on their bottoms. The moon walking, Bruno Mars inspired smooth dancers. Finally my personal favorite the dance like no one is watching confident ones.
Sitting back and observing the dance floor it reminded me of adults the last hour of a wedding when inhibition and the fear of looking silly have gone by the wayside. Except it’s just Friday in Room 1 where we let loose with the only intent of having fun.
