Children will learn the moves to this fun Hip Hop dance song!
Hip Hop (Fast) is a great brain breaks action, dance song for children. It makes it easy and fun to take a quick energy break. When children take a moment to sing, dance and move then they can return to their academics feeling happy, energized and renewed. So take a brain break, about every 35 minutes, to get up, move, dance and release all that built-up energy and stress.
Why children should take brain breaks in the classroom?
Brain breaks allow children the opportunity mentally rest their brain by diverting their mind into movements that allow them to:
• release stress
Regular children's classroom brain breaks enhance attentiveness, concentration, focus and accelerate learning by allowing them to release their energy, anxiety and stress. Brain breaks in the classroom also increase circulation and promote physical fitness and coordination. This brain breaks children's dance song is great for preschool, kindergarten and elementary age children. This song is also ideal for indoor recess, group activities and physical education.

I'm hip hop Don with street clothes on. I'm here to show you whereupon,
I say, you listen, we go. We'll start off slow.
Palms down, the points of your fingers face each other.
Lift up and push down. That's good let's do another.
This time when you lift, your knee follows your hands.
Just like a puppet string, it moves at your command.
Right knee Up, down (4x) left knee Up, down (4x)
Keep doing it, you got that right.
This hip hop stuff is out of sight.
And now let's try a brand new thing.
In a while, right now let's sing.
H to the I, I to the P that's hip; H to the O, O to the P that's hop. It's hip hop.
Fan with your hands, cool down your face.
Keep doing this and keep the pace.
Take giant steps to the right and left.
Now back up and retrace your steps and stop.
Point your toes first in then out.
And that will move you all about.
Now raise your arms. Swing them around
Side to side, up and down, now stop.
Stand up straight, your shoulders back, your chest moves to the beat.
Now bob you're your head in time with that, no stopping, just repeat.
Add your arms swoop lower now, twisting to the beat.
Make your way back up, that move is complete.
Hands on your knees now jump real small. It looks just like your sliding.
Jump left and right and all about and keep your legs real wide and
Use your hands for attitude like to point or to POP!
A "Y" hand means whatever, and an open hand means STOP!
