Cha-Cha Slide

Last Thursday, Radio Disney stopped by our school to host two assemblies. One was for our Elementary students and the other was for our Primary students. Some might have grumbled at the fact that the teachers had to attend the assembly and participate. I was not one of those grumblers. I was right in the middle of the kids, doing all the dances. Surprisingly or sadly, I knew all of them and even received a couple of compliments from the Radio Disney people themselves. They are promoting their new thing of "5 different activities for 5 minutes and all 5 food groups" during the day. It made exercise fun for these kids and not scary at all.

When the assembly began, I sat in the back so I could keep an eye on everyone, however, that soon changed whenever they would have us dance. I ran up to the front and got in the middle of the students and we all had a blast. We did the Cha-Cha Slide, the Chicken Dance, the Step, and then we jammed to "Camp Rock". It was so cool. (wink) Honestly, I did have a lot of fun!

At the Primary, we did the Cha-Cha Slide and Chicken Dance. Then, we did some of the best dances! There was a silly dance and the kids loved it. I cannot wait until I have kids and we will dance around all the time. Those of you who have younger kids (or no kids) probably don't listen to Radio Disney all the time, but it is really fun for children to listen to. It's music that they like and you don't have to worry about it being inappropriate or vulgar. It's a great thing!

One thing I do marvel at, is the fact that some students cannot remember that 2 + 2 = 4, but put on a Jonas Brothers song or Hannah Montana and step back! They will blow you over by singing ALL of the lyrics perfectly! Amazing!

If you could just get the Jonas Bros to sing about 2+2=4, you'd be set! :)
