Dance to the Music

Keep several tapes or CDs of dance music in your classroom. When you have extra time at the end of the day or before lunchtime, play the music and let your class dance to it. Have some students teach new moves to the rest of the class. You can also try doing some modern or classic dances (and teaching them if you know how!).
