26 Pop Songs Little Kids (& Parents) Can Dance to


5. “Party in the U.S.A.” — Miley Cyrus

Old Miley gives us a blast of danceable fun with this one. Get out the video camera and capture the fun the kids will have prancing around to this 2009 pop hit.

4. “Break Free” — Ariana Grande

The best part of “Break Free” is definitely the call for dramatic hand gestures. If you’re not flailing around wildly with the kids, you’re doing it all wrong.

3. “I’m a Believer” — Smash Mouth and Eddie Murphy

This song, originally recorded by the Monkees in the ’60s, is best known by today’s kids as “the song from the Shrek movie.” It was recorded by Smash Mouth and Eddie Murphy for the first Shrek movie and redone by Weezer for the sequel Shrek Forever After. Pick your favorite version and start grooving!

2. “Mickey” — Toni Basil

“Oh Mickey, you’re so fine. You’re so fine you blow my mind. Hey Mickey! (clap, clap, clap, clap) Hey Mickey!” Show the kids the music video from this ’80s pop song and they just might want to dress up in a cheerleader costume and rock out.

1. “Groove is in the Heart” — Deee-Lite

“Groove is in the Heart” was named one of the Top 100 Dance Songs by Slant magazine — and for good reason. The song is a disco/funk/hip-hop combo that will have you and the kids up out of your seats and on the dance floor from the get-go.
