29 April is World Dance Day

Celebrate World Dance Day by including a dance in your classes on Thursday.  You could start off your class with a  TPR warmer.  A popular one with younger children is the Tweenies singing ‘Copy me do’:

Also check out Boogie Beebies:

Check out this fun version of ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’ to dance to.

And remember:

You can dance anywhere, even if only in your heart.  ~Author Unknown

There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them.  ~Vicki Baum (Austrian author)

If you don’t get to dance, you could watch Matt whilst at your computer.  I just love this fun video of Matt literally dancing around the world.  Sit back and enjoy the spectacular views. The dancing is really contagious.  A feel-good video you cannot help smiling at.

Today’s entry is dedicated to my friend Patti who just loves dancing.
