What are you waiting for to have a family dance with these Christmas carols?
We have made a compilation with the Christmas songs with more rhythm. You will have a great time singing and dancing with them.
1. Arre Borriquito
This is one of the great classics at Christmas, especially in countries like Spain. It is a playful carol and a bit of a hooligan that tells of the arrival of some children in Bethlehem after committing some mischief. It has a fun rhythm and the lyrics are also very funny to children. However, what makes this Christmas song perfect for dancing is its choreography. Your children will have a great time trotting around the house like donkeys to the beat of the music.
2. Jingle Bell Rock
The rhythm of this Christmas song makes it one of the best songs to dance with the family. You can invent all kinds of dance steps that go well with the swing style of this popular American Christmas carol. And while you have fun dancing, you can practice English by singing it. Sooner or later, you can play to discover what the song is about. To do this, you have to translate the lyrics of this Christmas carol into Spanish.
3. Christmas, today is Christmas

You can dance the Spanish version or, if you prefer, the English version, that is, Jingle Bells.
4. At the stroke of midnight

In addition to being a fun and funky Christmas song, Rudolph the red nose reindeer tells a beautiful story that speaks of tolerance and respect.

This is a Christmas carol to be sung around the Christmas tree. You can go around a thousand times while moving your arms up and down, you can jump like kangaroos, you can squat ...
