Instructions to a mindful game of freeze dance:
1.) Create a fun playlist
2.) Begin playing freeze dance. Everyone will move until the music stops.
3.) Once the music stops and everyone freezes, assign mindfulness prompts to reflect on.
No one will be eliminated from the game in order to create a safe and comfortable space. Below are some sample prompts:
- Reflect on the sensation of moving and being still.
- Freeze or move the body in a way that reflects how the song feels to a child.
- Freeze like the shape of a letter, an animal, or a superhero
- Dance in certain ways—like a ballerina, a famous artist, or an animal.
