Summer is well and truly underway, and in true British style we’re getting lots of the wet stuff as well as the hot. Whatever the weather, we thought it was time to head outside this summer with Twinklesteps and Jett’s Dance Dares. Do you dare…?
Our first dare is easy peasy – do you dare dance outside?
Wear whatever shoes you like (or no shoes at all) and have a go at dancing outside. We’re big fans of this and can guarantee you’ll have fun with all the space of your garden or park to play in. Practice your ballet moves or make something up. Dance alone, with a friend, a parent or even a pet.
Jett dares you to do an arabesque with a leaf between your toes…
This one’s a lot of fun. Find a leaf and put it between your toes (don’t go for a prickly one!). Now try and do an arabesque…is it easy or hard? If it’s super easy why not try with a leaf between every toe!
Twinklesteps dares you to make a dance obstacle course out of outside objects
Collect some twigs, stones, leaves (or anything else you find), arrange them on the ground and then make up a dance that weaves in and out of them. Add in some leaps and jumps and you’re away.
Twinklesteps and Jett dare you to dance as if you can fly.
Twinklesteps has wings and Jett has magical arm bands which help him to fly. Can you make up a dance and pretend you can fly too? Do some long graceful leaps and you might even start to fool the birds! If you’d like to make some flying wristbands of your own you can follow our craft activity here.
Twinklesteps and Jett dare you to dance using a stick as a wand.
Everyone loves a stick and Twinklesteps and Jett are no exception. Find a good stick and pretend it’s a wand. Use your wand to help you as you dance amongst the flowers and trees, sending magic to the plants to help them grow.
Well done for giving Twinklesteps and Jett’s Dance Dares a go. We hope you enjoyed them. If you have ideas for any more Dance Dares do share them here on our blog or on our Facebook page.
Enjoy the rest of the summer, from the Twinklesteps team.
