The Number One Bonding Game for Your Dance Team or Spirit Squad!
Ever heard of speed dating? Well, this game is similar. You're going to break the ice with your team and make quick connections!
What you need:
Timer - consider an interval timer app.
Some way to make announcements. Maybe a megaphone? Hey, it's more fun when it's funny!
A list of questions; see below.
Split your team into two groups.
Consider a team sleepover, dinner outing, or something fun to finish out the event!
Start each round with one simple question.
Then ask a more detailed follow-up question.
We think it’s easier to have the coaches run the game and ask the questions.
Set up chair pairs or a long table.
Place a letter A or B, number 1 or 2, red or white, or however you want to designate the groups on the chairs so the groups know where to go and how to rotate.
Side A of the table answers everything first. This will eliminate that awkward “who’s first feeling.”
Simple questions that have one-word answers:
How many siblings do you have?
What neighborhood do you live in?
How many pets do you have?
What is your favorite color?
What’s your favorite snack?
What’s your favorite sport?
Deeper questions require more elaborate responses:

Who is your favorite relative and why?

Favorite style of dance and why?
Biggest strength as a dancer?

If you had to become one movie character, who would it be and why?
If school and money were no object, what would be your dream job?

What is one passion or hobby you have that I should know about you?
