Trick or treat! It is officially autumn! We put out the pumpkins, pecan pies, and the apple cider. We're getting our sweaters and warmer clothing ready for the cold days ahead. More importantly, with autumn comes Halloween parties! What better way to spend time in a Halloween party than dancing to some spooktacular kids dance Halloween songs?

Kids Dance class HalloweenHalloween parties are a great opportunity for your kids to show you the dance moves they learned in our dance classes as well as a chance for you to connect with your child through this beloved activity. At a party we know kids tend to run around, which is great exercise in and of itself, but dancing will be able to add more fun to the mix and make it more interactive. These great kids dance Halloween songs are an opportunity for your little ones to have some fun and burn off some of that candy!

When kids dance they are more prone to making friends and building their socialization skills. Through dancing, these kids dance Halloween songs provide a perfect opportunity for your children to foster those needed relationships. 

If you’ve run out of games to play or are done with trick or treating, dancing is a great way for you and your little ones to let loose and have fun together! 

Here are the Top 7 Kids Dance Halloween Songs for Your Little Dancers!

1. Ray Parker, Jr. - "Ghost Busters"

Although the movie is before your little dancers’ time, this groovy Halloween dance song is still a dance move starter today! You can start off the party with this great song and get the dance moves going! The fun refrain of “GHOST BUSTERS” is also super fun to sing and a great way for you and your little dancers to have some fun.

 2. The Skeleton Dancehalloween_kids3.jpg

Although it’s not technically a Halloween song, the fact that it’s about skeletons makes it spooktacularly fun! This interactive dance song comes with hand and feet motions and can even teach your child about human anatomy.  "The head bone's connected to the neck bone..." So spooooky!

3. Bobby "Boris" Pickett - "Monster Mash"

This one’s a classic! This 50’s Halloween smash is a great groovy dance song for you and your little dancers. It is a great song to do the twist with! This will be a great song for the parents and kids to dance along with!

4. Nightmare Before Christmas - "This Is Halloween"

Although the Tim Burton movie may be a bit scary for your little ones, this particular Halloween song is great to dance and sing along to! Turn it onwhen your little ones get tired, it’s a great mid-tempo song that can still keep everyone going but gives them time to rest.

5. Alvin & The Chipmunks - "Witch Doctor"

 This 1950’s classic was remastered for the Alvin & The Chipmunks movie. This version has a great groove and perfect for those hip-hop dance moves! Plus, it is fun to hear them sing the chorus at random times!

6. Michael Jackson - "Thriller"

This one is another classic kids dance Halloween song that comes with some amazing dance moves by Michael Jackson! You can learn the dance yourself and then teach some of the moves to your little ones. Who doesn't love a moonwalking toddler? Just don’t show them the video. It is very spoooooooky!kidsdancehalloween2
