JUST DANCE

LET'S TWIST AGAIN

dance

You're no square so you'll want to learn these moves, a bit of history from 1960. I recently did this for a performance - it was great fun, the students really enjoyed it, they invented individual dances and scripted them with stick figures. Above is an example of their drawings.

We filmed the whole dance sequence and included cutaways of individual performances.

WE STARTED
With a bit of history from Aaron at the… The Children's Museum of Indianapolis
WE LEARNED
The twist moves with Jennifer Parker and squished a bug. Get bug squishing with Jennifer's Twist Dance Steps
THEN LOOKED AT
Twist tutorials with 3 guys for some inspiration. Older groups chose to do cutaways at different locations.

CHUBBY CHECKER

twist

Come on everybody!
Clap your hands!
Aw, you're looking good!
I'm goona sing my song
It won't take long!
We're gonna do the Twist
And it goes like this:

Come on let's twist again
Like we did last summer!
Yeaaah, let's twist again
Like we did last year!

Do you remember when
Things were really hummin
'Yeaaaah, let's twist again
Twistin' time is here!

Heeee, and round and round and up and down we go again!
Oh, baby, make me know you love me sooooo
And then:

Twist again
Like we did last summer
Come on, let's twist again
Like we did last year!

PDF of Lyrics to What does the Fox Say
Around 3 mins and the last one is great for younger grades. The words are also fabulous to use for speech marks, and descriptions.
