The Dance

Good for all ages, (is actually a fun party game for numerous adults i know), as long as you have a good memory!


Everyone gets into a circle and someone is chosen to go first. They have to perform one action (can be jumping, scratching their head, etc). The second person repeats the first person's action, and then adds their own. The third person has to repeat the first person's, the second person's, and then add their own.

This then goes on around the circle, with each person acting out all the movements IN THE RIGHT ORDER, or they are "out" and have to watch for the rest of the game. It can be difficult for the person on the other side of the leader but thats life ;) (to avoid disappointment, start the introduction to the game by saying, "who thinks they have a good memory?" and using the person NEXT to that one to start the game. the boasting child will then have to prove if they have a good memory or not...)

Lesson:
to not boast?
leadership - follow the leader

Rules:
strictly speaking no one is meant to hint when someone is struggling to remember the order, but as there is much suspense sometimes they do it anyway!
