Dance it Out!

We all need a little inspiration! Let’s dance to songs about heroes. What’s YOUR hero pose and hero move?

Materials:

-Music
-Your dancing feet

Set up (help explain this activity to your child):

1. Heroes have special poses and moves that they use to inspire us: Bot has “extendo” arms and legs, Blaze has super speed, Super Rubble is there on the double and is great at digging! What is YOUR hero pose and move?

2. Let’s listen to some music and think about how we might move like a hero. Do we jump in the air? Dance with a cape? Twirl around?

3. First, let’s pose like a hero: legs apart, arms on hips, elbows bent. Hold the pose! Now, show us your moves. Stop the music and pose again! Now dance!

Words to Use:

Inspire – encourage someone to do something

Twirl
– to spin around quickly

Cape
– a coat without sleeves that you wear around your neck

Simplify:

Stand like a hero, then dance together, holding hands!

Stretch:

Make up a dance with your hero moves. Perform it for your family — or video chat with a grandparent or someone else far away to show off your dance moves.

Why:

Dancing is a great way to exercise your muscles. Plus, thinking up new ways to move your body encourages your hero’s creativity!
