medley - unknown author with ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ by Arthur Freed and Nacio Brown, Emi Robbins catalog Inc.

We first heard this led at Pinewoods Camp by Katy Tarter, and later found it in the New England Dancing Masters’ collection. It is an instant crowd pleaser for all ages, and fairly self-explanatory, although a quick walk through of the “chee chee cha” dance might be wise at the start.
4 and older
Formation: Dancers scattered, facing the leader.

Lyrics

I’m singing in the rain, just singing in the rain
What a glorious feeling I’m hap hap happy again. Clap hands on each “hap”

Thumbs out dancers repeat after the leader
A chee chee cha Thumbs dance to the right
A chee chee cha Thumbs dance to the left
A chee chee Thumbs dance right
Cha left
Cha right

Keep thumbs up (and elbows, knees, etc. in their commanded positions) and dance around yourself as you sing
I’m singing in the rain, just singing in the rain
What a glorious feeling I’m hap hap happy again. dancers stand facing leader and clap hands on each “hap”

Repeat and add the following actions
Elbows back
Knees together
Bum out
Head up
Tongue out
