Dance Music for Kids


Well-Known Member
Does anyone have suggestions for fun songs for 7-11yo kids to dance to? I have been showing my nieces and their friends a few steps(International Style) as holiday entertainment. So far we have the "Gummy Bear song" for Cha, "One eyed, One horned Flying Purple People Eater" for social foxtrot, and "Waltzing with Bears" (slowed down) for Waltz. I have "Run Llama run" ready for quickstep but they are not up to that yet. Any suggestions welcome.

There's a few Radio Disney playlists on Spotify.

"Disney Radio Throwbacks"

Some clean ideas that might appeal to bit more on the older spectrum...

Demi Lovato - So Far So Great

Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" may work here too.
"Happy" by Pharrell I think is also clean, but you'd have to check.

There's plenty of others from that Spotify Playlist, mostly from Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, older Miley Cyrus stuff, and High School Musical.

There's hilarious Dog Tango (there's a DF thread on it somewhere).

Let it Go (from Frozen) is a waltz.

Sweet Like Cola (chacha) is generally a hit with kids.

Happy (from Despicable Me), Dear Future Husband and Candyman are popular jives.

The dog tango = Wags the Dog, He Likes to Tango. Super cute! Also, Endangered Love from Veggie Tales is a cute tango too.

Note that Let It Go in its original form from Frozen isn't a waltz, but there's a waltzified version from DJ Ice.

Sweet Like Cola has borderline not-kid-friendly lyrics, but people generally tend not to notice, but Dear Future Husband and Candyman definitely occupy not-kid-friendly territory lyric-wise.

+1 for Shake It Off and Happy. Also the Duck Tales theme is a jive!
