Secret Dancer

An active music no prep game

How To Play Secret Dancer

A fun group game, sure to provide a whole lot of laughs. Might be suitable for a disco night at your youth group!

Set up the group to stand in a circle, and choose one player to be the detective. Send the detective outside.

When the detective has left the room, choose a player to be the "secret dancer". They will need to pick a dance move and everyone will then start copying them.

When everyone is dancing, the detective is called back into the room and has three guesses to choose who to original dancer is.

To make things interesting, the secret dancer then needs to change dance move, and everyone needs to change with them. This allows the detective to discover the secret dancer.

We play a version of this where all the children sit in the circle and pass a bunch of keys behind their backs and the detective has to find them
