Dance Games sessions are available for children (ages 4 and up), youth, adults, and families. The activities are adapted for the ages and abilities of the people present.

Participants have mentioned finding the games fun, awesome, exhilarating and playful, with the side-effect of being a great work-out.

There are so many movement games we can play! A few examples: a dancing version of Go, go, go, Stop!, slow-motion dance tag, movement bingo, charades, and dancing with bubbles. People are welcome to suggest games, too!

Anonymous note after a session in Tsartlip

An hour is often a good length for each Dance Games session, but it is flexible. For example, a half-hour can be enough to re-energize a group at a conference, or for a longer session the games could be paired with: learning dance concepts, arts & writing, or creating a short dance together to perform.
