With Halloween in the air, it’s time to cast a spell to raise Five Minutes for Fitness from the dead with a killer dance party concoction that will surely lift your sprits.
My girls love to play freeze dance to Witch Doctor. The Alvin and the Chipmunks’ 2007 remake of an old classic is just song to get your heart pumping while having fun with the kids. To play the freeze dance game, blast the tune and bust your best moves. Jump up and down or shake your tail to the beat. Then, hit the pause button to make everyone stop. The dancing resumes once the music plays again.
Also, add the Monster Mash to your Halloween dance playlist. This twisting tune will build your obliques and help burn the blubber around your waist. In case you have two left feet, try these moves.
And, of course, Thriller is a Halloween party mix must! No mere mortals can resist those zany zombie moves, which are a knee-jerk reaction once you hear the music. I found this vintage dance instruction video clip to teach you the steps. Hold on to your leg warmers; it’s pretty frightening.
Once you learn 80’s Kim’s fine dance moves, test your skills out with the tune.
If you want to keep the dance party hopping, here are some more spine-tingling sounds to give you and your kids a thrilling time:
- Hungry Like the Wolf
- I Want Candy
- Staying Alive
- Let’s Go Crazy
- Scooby Doo Theme Song
