I tried a preschool group and would not recommend any dances with formations, holding
hands, or set moves. That’s just not where they are developmentally.
What I’d recommend is the hokey pokey and other singing games. Old brass wagon, Sally goes
round the sun, down by the station & you can do the trains.
You can also bring colorful scarves, balloons, a parachute if there are enough adults to
hold it up, bubbles etc with songs and wandering around. They would enjoy freeze games

Subject: [Callers] pre-school dances?

I've got my collection of family dances that I use with mixed age groups.
But I wonder if anyone has recommendations for family dance stuff when you
don't have the full family?
What's good for ~12 pre-schoolers (age 3 to 5) when they aren't dancing
with their parents; and you have maybe 2 other adults total. It seems
dubious they'd get through even two dances, so give me your favorite if you
