KYLIE: Hi, everyone. I'm Kylie.

CHARLIE: And I'm Charlie.

KYLIE: And we're really excited to be here today to teach you a little dance which has being designed for students in Kindergarten to Year 2.

CHARLIE: The aim of today is to make sure that everybody is having fun and getting involved.

KYLIE: Most importantly, we want you to be safe, so make sure that the area you're dancing in is clear of furniture, and be really aware of the surface that you're dancing on. If the floor is slippery, you might like to wear joggers or bare feet, and if you're dancing on carpet you can wear your socks.

CHARLIE: Let's start with a quick warm up, and then we'll get into the choreography.

KYLIE: Let's go!

CHARLIE: OK, everybody, we're going to start by getting our heart rates up, and then we're going to do some stretching. We're going to do eight star jumps followed by eight counts of running on the spot, then we'll repeat that. Let's go! 5, 6, 7, go!

[music - Macklemore, 'Glorious']

MACKLEMORE (ON STEREO): (SINGING) You know I'm back like I never left. I never left. Another sprint

CHARLIE: 5, 6, 7, running! 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. Again!

MACKLEMORE (ON STEREO): I got a new attitude, and a lease on life, and some peace of mind. Seek and I find I can sleep when I die.

CHARLIE: Good! Running! 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, OK. Stretching your neck.

CHARLIE: Good job! 6, 7, now we're going to go forward.

Good! Now we're going to need to take our arm and push our shoulder low, and change. All right, shake out your body. Let's get into our dancing.

KYLIE: OK, everyone, we're going to start by teaching you the choreography. So, we need you to pop your foot and put your hands on your hips, and we're going to start by stepping up on 1, 2, down, 3, 4, and your arms will be shooting up 1, 2, and then down to a fist 3, 4. Then we're going to step, 5, clap, 6, step, 7, clap, 8. Fantastic! Let's try that much.

Ready? Pop your toe, and we go up on 1, 2, down, 3, 4, step, 5, clap, 6, 7, clap, 8. Fantastic! Then we go over the rainbow, so we go over, 1, 2, bounce, 3, 4, step forward, 5, 6, jump, 7, 8, and as you step forward. The lyrics, they say squash 'em, so what we're going to do is we're going to step forward really strong. Squash 'em! Fantastic!

Let's try all of that with the music. Get ready! 5, 6, 7, go! Up! Over the rainbow, and squash 'em. Yes! Good job! OK, everyone. So, we're going to start the next part of the choreography. So, we finished off here, and then we're going to do four big hips with our arms shooting up over our head to shine. So, ready? We go 1, 2, 3, 4. Fantastic!

Now, if we just do our arms, so we'll break that down from here, our arms go up and over 1, 2, 3, 4. And our hips, they just go 1, 2, 3, 4. Fantastic! After we've done that, we need the world to see, so we're going to look this way for the world to see, and then look this way for the world to see. Fantastic!

So, let's do that much. Ready? We go up on 1, 2, 3, 4, look, 5, 6, look, 7, 8. Then we're going to turn around on 1, 2, 3, 4, up, 5, 6, then you're going to pose anything you want to be awesome on 7, 8. OK, and that can be anything. So, we're up on 5, 6, pose, 7, 8. Let's try that much.

Your feet go heel behind, step, clap, heel behind, step, clap. Now we're going to try that again, but we'll turn around so you can see our feet. Are you ready? Finishing in your pose, and we do heel behind, step, clap, heel behind, step, clap. Super!

The last part is my favourite. You get to do four big hips. We go 1, 2, 3, 4, and point because it says 'you'. All right, let's try that much through, and then we'll do it all with the music.
