Fun Fit Family Activities for a Halloween Party – Dancing Games for Children, Teens and Adults

(I put a spell on you) This video highlights a Halloween Family Dance Event. Ohana MUVE is a class designed for everyone! Multi-generational exercise for the whole family to enjoy quality time together. In this all-inclusive dance class; kids, teens, aunties, parents and even grandparents can enjoy healthy physical activity together. This game is great because it builds small teams, encourages leadership and supports others to follow. Its exciting, energetic, and allows participants to exert themselves creatively. In this game, players rotate within their individual triangles to the leader position to lead two fellow dancers. In MUVE, we call leaders, the 'Muse' because they serve as the creative inspiration. The call for triangle-rotation is 'Huli Huli', and it moves players one position clockwise within the individual triangles. Everyone shares the roles of leaders and followers. As you teach this game you can use other MUVE Concept Cards to help the students find creative ideas. There are various types of inspiration concepts (Emotions, Motions, Opposites, Characters) available in our toolbox http://muve.org/tool-box/

Each couple receives a towel to connect with each other. Partners dance freely around the room until the Caller calls for a 'Mix-up'. Each dancer now finds a new partner by either waving their towel or wiggle their fingers in the air. This game is about synergy and cooperation, how we dance while connected and how to negotiate moving as a single organism.

Happy MUVE Dancing Party Game invigorates adults and children alike

There are many MUVE dancing games you can use to ignite a fun group activity at any party. Wether you are looking to inspire your own kids and their fiends at a birthday party, or want to inspire your church group to get to know each other on a playful level MUVE has got a game for you. The game above is called "independent TRIANGLES" and can be played in it's basic form without markings. Here is how to do it: Ask your guests to form teams of 3. Then let them decide who will be the first dance leader for their team. Let the leaders raise their hands and declare that the "spots" where they stand are now called the "Leader-Spots" (Muse-spot.) Then demonstrate the "Huli Huli" rotation principle with one of the Triangle-team. "Huli Huli" means: Everybody moves one position clockwise. Now we have a new leader in the Triangle. Have everyone practice the Huli Huli rotation without music first. I find it very helpful to place a sticker at the Leader spots. I makes it very obvious who are the Muses (leaders) at all times.

Cupid Shuffle gets birthday party rockin' with MUVE Dancing Game "The Wave"

Play this game to bring back the dance to the party. The Wave is a simple dancing game that can bring out the fun in everyone. Each dancer leads one movement to the center and back while the others follow loosely. "Loosely" because MUVE is always spontaneous. There is no need to be precise. It's inherently not a performance but an experience. In opposite to other party dancing games, the goal here is not to outshine or "eliminate" the competition, but to inspire others by your example. There are no losers in a MUVE dancing game. The winners are those who realize the freedom to express themselves joyfully.
