Preschool Dance Party

4 Jun

Yesterday I blogged about my Toddler Dance Party, well today I wanted to quickly share my song list for my Preschool Dance Party I held yesterday afternoon.  It was very well attended, but I did notice that many more of the preschoolers needed more direction than the toddlers – they (the toddlers) would just jump, turn around in circles and have fun, but many of the preschoolers would dance if there were directions, but without directions some of the group tended to just stand around.  I’m not sure if this was just the group dynamic or if this is more common, so I did try and change up a little of my music to give the kids more songs that had actions to them.
