Movement game for elementary students creates dance exercise fun and leadership opportunities

(Mi Nina) In this game we are learning to work as a team and lead each other in spontaneous dance moves. The dancing starts on the Triangle Grid. Each Triangle has a specific corner marked with a red dot. This is the "Muse-Spot", whoever occupies it is the leader of their triangle-team. When the teacher/caller gives the command to "Break out," the students on the red spots now lead their teams in a snake dance all around the room. After a while, the teacher calls a "Mix-up" and everyone finds a new triangle with new team mates. We start all over again on the Triangles until the next "Break-out."
