Although this may not be actual dancing, it is a good preparation for it. Kids need many opportunities to experience RHYTHM and burn it into their very souls. Then, later when they do need to learn choreography, it will already be second nature!
The great thing about this song is that it is appropriate for nearly any time of the year. It seems that the Baseball and Football seasons overlap or are only divided briefly by Christmas and a winter hiatus. What I have found is that Baseball Fans, as well as Football Fans, really are enthusiastic about their sports and have no need of a vacation from it! So, that gives this little song great longevity! It's a song for all seasons!
