EXPRESS YOURSELF

April 19, 2013

I love a game called Express Yourself where the children are free to dance however they want.  All you need is some fun music.  Here’s how to play:

  • Preface the exercise by saying, “Dance as though no one is watching!”
  • Play the music of your choice. After a short time pause the music, have the child freeze, and then have them do a crazy, scary or surprised pose for example.
  • Or you can choose a pose for the child to do when they freeze.  It could be a never before seen yoga pose that the child has to make up on the spot.  It really allows the child to be creative and it gives them a good workout too!
