When considering the letter "W" for an Alphabet Dance, I immediately thought of Wind.  There have been some insanely windy days out here lately, and with our lack of trees and buildings, we feel it in all it's glory.

Yummy and Dooter were due for another Alphabet Dance experience.  I chose the letter T this time, for Twirl & Twist.  We've been doing a lot of dancing to Christmas music in our house these days and Boney M really gets the kids moving.  Yummy's favourite is their version of Joy to The World.

This post is part of my ongoing series, The Alphabet Dances, which you can find here.  For the letter 'U', I decided to create some ribbon wands as dancing props, something to physically dance under.  I used some wooden circles that I found at a thrift shop (you can likely find some at a dollar store or craft store) and simply tied long ribbons to each.

This post is part of a series called The Alphabet Dances where I am exploring the alphabet through movement and dance with my children.  Today it is Z for ZigZag (Yummy's letter choices seem to have no rhyme or reason), which seems like a perfect occasion to explore pathways.

The letter "E" was Yummy's next choice for an Alphabet Dance, so we got to experiment with the non-locomotor movement of EXPLODE!

I am starting a series called The Alphabet Dances, which is going to explore different elements of dance and give me and my children some exercise with our creative explorations.  I'd love to have you join us and let me know how your kids enjoy it!
