(Geronimo) What better way to connect a group of children but through their natural inclination to play together. MUVE utilizes dance games to explore teamwork, leadership and creative risk taking, all the while providing solid fitness for everyone. When we add fun props like plates, balls or silly hats- children can explore their imaginations and take it to another level. Check out how silly these little ones are with these character hats. There is no prior knowledge needed for MUVE Dancing games. All games are super easy, and people of all shapes, sizes and age groups and abilities can play these community building games together. For large groups we recommend that you prepare a MUVE dancing grid with removable stickers and tape. In this video, we replaced the triangle grid with a polydot for easier set-up/breakdown and to accommodate more than 3 children to a team. However, if you are looking for something even easier there are several games that you can do with absolutely no preparation. The game above is called "independent TRIANGLES". Ask your players to form teams of 3 and stand at the corner of a triangle. Two corners of the triangle are green and one special dot is red. Then let them decide who will be the first dance leader for their team, they will stand on the red dot aka, the "Leader-Spots" (Muse-spot). The Muse will provide the dance inspiration for the other two players. 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.

This game is versatile, each snake could have two participants or can have 30+. This game is a crowd favorite, and sure to get your blood pumping. Each line is considered the snake. The head of the snake leads the rest of the body (other students) throughout the room. The head is also the MUSE (dance leader), creating the movement inspiration for the rest of the group. The snakes must work together to stay close and not run into other snakes.

Dancing with Preschool kids – MUVE circle dancing game for small children

The "Circle JUMP" is one of the most simple MUVE Dancing Games because it needs not set up other than getting the preschoolers into a circle formation. Then one after the other gets to jump into the middle and bust a move.

Now a new MUSE will take up the lead in each triangle. Take a look how easy this is for this group of co-workers.

Dance Exercise for Teenagers – Creativity, Teamwork and Leadership Skills Training for Teens

(1, 2 Step) There are colored markers on the ground. Each group of 4 spots has a different color and one of them has a "double-spot" which we call "Snake-eyes." If you land on this spot you will be the first "head" and start leading your team in a SNAKE-Dance (conga-line) until the Caller calls for a "SWITCH & SCOOT." Now all dancers turn 180 degrees, the last member becomes the new leader (SWITCH) and, in an additional movement the old leader now scoots up by one position (SCOOT). This double action moves every player of the team into the leading position. Take a look. These participants have never MUVEed before and some can feel their shyness being challenged. MUVE dance exercises are great party activities for teenagers and adults alike. This spontaneous dancing game is super fun and easy for groups from 3 to 300. Just mark the spots and have a microphone for explaining the rules.

Dance Activity Game for School, Party or any Get-Together – Spontaneous Dancing Fun for all Ages

(Get Lucky) At this summer's Winners Camp workshop we discovered a new MUVE Dancing Game (MDG) that is super easy to set up - actually can be played without any markings, but still works more smoothly on the Partner Grid. The name of the game is the "Tight-Rope-Slide". In this game, partners lead each other in dance, sliding as a pair (like on a tandem bicycle) from one side of the room to the other and back. Whenever the two dancers come to the "end of the rope" they turn 180 degrees and start moving to the opposite direction. The dancer in the front is providing the movement ideas until the turn, when the second dancer takes over the lead. To make it more fun we can throw in a "MIX-UP," that's when we break our partnerships and find a new partner to do the Tight-Rope-Slide again.

(Accentuate The Positive) This is a dance-along with 100+ people participating! A projector helps communicate the inspiring Movement Concepts "MOTIONS" as the group loosely follows MUSE Maggie on stage. MUVE Dance-alongs and Dancing Games are easy to do. They help relieve stress, improve physical wellbeing and give people the opportunity to connect with each other. When you invite MUVE to do a workshop with your staff, faculty, assembly or party guests we will usually start with a simple dance following a MUSE. But very soon everyone gets to explore their own moves and then share them with their co-dancers. Invite a MUVE educator to "animate" your office meeting or party. Find out more at the MUVE website where you can learn to teach these games yourself. For help hire a MUVE Educator to lead your group into a fun collective mass physical activity game.
