Brighten your day ~ Do the Chicken Dance!

The "Chicken Dance" is very easy to learn regardless of age or agility.

If you have a a group of people.....
Begin in a large circle. Everybody faces towards the center.
At the start of the music, shape a chicken beak with your hands.
• Open and close it four times, during the first four beats of the music.
Make chicken wings with your arms.
• Flap your wings four times, with the next four beats of the music.
Make a chicken's tail feathers with your arms and hands.
• Wiggle downwards along with the next four beats of the music.
• Finally, clap four times for the next four beats of the music.
• Repeat this "set" four times.
• After the fourth repeat -
hold hands with your neighbors and walk as a circle.
• Switch directions when the leader says so to do.

The dance repeats and grows progressively faster and faster,
until the music stops (or folks are laughing too hard to continue).

Please remember you can always do the Chicken Dance all by yourself!
