I thought today I would share what is on my current list of songs that are 1) great dance songs, 2) appropriate for elementary age kids in their original form (not edited), and 3) cool enough for older kids (I'm not guaranteeing no teen eye rolls- I'm no fool- but at least I know they are not specifically marketed to little kids and therefore can't be dismissed as "baby music").
Many of these artists have lots of other great songs, and of course I could keep going with many more, but this post has to stop somewhere so I'll throw it out to all of you: what are your favorite songs for getting the whole family dancing and having fun? Leave your favorites in the comments!
Your turn: what did I miss? Now get up and dance!
