The best thing about kids is that they don't need a reason to be happy. They find happiness in the smallest of things and make do with very little. And when there are special modes of recreation added to their routine, they take the fun quotient to a whole new level. Dance songs, for instance, you put some music on, and I guarantee that there won't be a single kid there who's not shaking a leg to that.

Enough of this though, let's get to the main point that is dance songs for kids. I won't get into the details of why you want them and what you want to do with them, just the fact that you're looking for some good dance songs is reason enough to go along.
