Booty Shaking to Relieve Stress

I know this Jem (no relation to Jewel) song is about two years old, but flopping around to it is really satisfying in a way that is silly and helps me relieve stress.

So, everybody stand up.

Do it now!

Hit play.

When the intro comes on that sounds a little like the Nutcracker Suite, stand on your tip toes (or en pointe if you're really sassy) make ballet arms above your head and do a little string of pearls across the room until the beat starts.

When the beat starts, quickly shift to this pose: stand like Miss Wiggins from the Carol Burnett show, put your bent arms up near your shoulders with palms facing out. Now shake your ass side to side and push your arms out double time. You are now a funky girl! Go funky girl!

When the kids start singing, switch to a Pee Wee Herman dance (like Tequila! only faster).

When the kids quit singing, switch back to above. You'll get a chance in a little bit to revert back to the ballet you did in the intro.

Dance. Repeat.

Fun for me to picture you doing it too.

Picture this: me, three 13-yr-olds, one 8-year-old doing your dance. Fun, fun, fun!!
