Elementary School Dances Sock Hops parties music list and help

                  For those mobile DJs and kids entertainers I have compiled a great set list of songs to play at Elementary School Dances that will keep the non-stop flow of your school dance. The best tip I can give you to keep the kids going the whole time is fun party music and lots of interaction and group participation. 

                  Some great ideas for getting the kids involved in the party / school dance are Cha Cha Slide, Cupid Shuffle, Cotton Eyed Joe, Gangnam Style, Limbo, (Limbo Rock and Hot Hot Hot great songs for that) Freeze Dance contest, play upbeat party songs and stop the music every 20-30 seconds, hula hoop contests, Chain link contest where 2 lines get a hula hoop and have to climb through the hula hoop until they get to the end and not break the chain link. A couple others are YMCA, Hokey Pokey and of course the Chicken Dance. Another good one for both kids and adults is to have a few prizes to hand out and do a twist contest.

                   Below is a compiled list of very popular 2012 and 2013 School Dance songs especially set for Elementary School Dances, sock hops, dance parties and more. Most if not all should be clean but it would be wise to check your music over. Remember anything you play that's top 40 or dance music should be clean versions. I can also tell you about some other games you can play to so feel free to add your questions and comments.
