Disney Dance-Alongs

We’ve teamed up with Disney to create dance routines to help you get active with your kids

This Girl Can is all about celebrating women getting active, no matter how they like to do it.  Partnering with Disney and real families across England, we’ve captured some of the ways mums and kids get moving to the songs they love.  You can learn their moves or put your own spin on their routines.  At the end of the day, it’s about breaking a sweat while having a bit of fun.
