New Year's Eve 80's Party & Dance Charades

You know you're from the 80's when...
This New Year’s Eve, we are looking forward to hosting an 80’s party at our house.  (Imagine big hair, big makeup, mullets…)  Most years we have friends over, but this year will be a larger gathering with families with tween-agers and older. 

In looking for some type of game we could all play together that would be fun, I ran across a game called Dance Charades.  It sounded like a really fun time.  The concept of the game is to put ordinary daily activities to music, like vacuuming, making it a dance “move”,  and have the other team guess what you’re doing.  But because we are doing an 80’s party, I wanted to use 80’s music (thanks Jerri!) and, well, I didn’t want to spend for the game.  Call me cheap. 

So early on a Saturday morning, Reilly and I started coming up with “dance moves” that we can put to our own music.  It was really quite easy and I’m sure you could come up with some really great ideas of your own.  In all honesty, we did pirate a few from the game description, but below is the list we came up with…just in case you want to play the game, too, but are…you know…cheap.
