Guys, have you had your Friday dance party?
What? No?? What are you waiting for??
A Friday dance party is a way to shake off the stress of the week and kick-start your weekend. No matter if your dance moves are shockingly bad! Just GET MOVING!
The weather turned this week here in Virginia. We were having warm, sunny days until the temperature dropped and it started to pour rain. Today, the sun came out again, and we were grateful to get outside this afternoon.
But even an afternoon of running (aaaaaand accidentally rolling in dog poop–LOOOOOVELY) couldn’t get out all the pent-up energy from a rainy week in lockdown.
Enter: Dance Party!
Our kids LOVE a Friday dance party. Our current favorites are the Day of the Diesels from Thomas and Friends and (*shudder*) Crazy Frog.
But really, any song that gets you moving will do. We’ve also gone through some World Cup songs (hello Shakira!) and some old school dance hits. The boys do love to do a Twist.
We put on the little Bose bluetooth speaker, pull something up on Spotify, YouTube or whatever and GET MOVING.
Mostly, we’re just running around like fools in the living room. Sometimes we attempt some real dance moves, but mostly we’re just being silly. And that’s the beauty of the Friday dance party.
It does not matter how well you dance or how cool you look. You’re sharing an unguarded moment of silliness, fun and joy with your family.
Put It In Your Calendar
Schedule it. Put it in your calendar. Make your Friday dance party a weekly event.
Pull up your favorite dance tunes (no, it doesn’t have to be Crazy Frog). Crank up the volume. A bit of boogieing before bedtime is definitely in order.
2020 has been a hard, and sucky year. Lighten it up. Add a dance party to your routine.
