Read Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae

Pick your favorite animal in the book. Imagine you’re that animal. Where do they live? What do they say? How do they move? Create a dance as that animal! 

Then listen to a song about what would happen if animals danced on YouTube and sing along!

Play a Theater Game! 

Miss Suzie Danced

It’s a call and response game! Each participant offers a dance move and everyone else repeats it. Show off your moves and watch everyone in the room mirror them back.

Thanks for the idea, Nicole Serra!
