What is the Bust a Move energizer? 💃

This energizer gets everyone up and moving, which will get your group more comfortable being silly and vulnerable with each other.

When you put someone on stage, they have to bust a move to the music and everyone else will follow. 🥳

How it works

Explain that you’d like to use movement to lift up the energy in the room, so that you can create a fun and relaxed atmosphere as a group.

Start the Music Playlist and put random participants on stage, one at a time. The person in the spotlight needs to do a dance move. Everyone else in the room must follow their lead.

After a couple of seconds, add another participant and remove the first one. The moves need to be original and cannot be repeated.

Continue putting different people on stage for 2-3 minutes before thanking everyone with big applause from the soundboard (⌨️ shortcut S+3).
