Singing in the Rain is a singing and dancing game for groups of any size. It can be played at almost any time, but it is perfect for rainy days at youth camps.


Some lyrics of the song Singin' in the Rain of Gene Kelly are used:

I'm singing in the rain
just singing in the rain
what a glorious feeling
I'm happy again


First, the above mentioned verse of the song is sung. Then the leader interrupts using these words:

  • Hold it, hold it!

The text is repeated by all participants.

Then, the leader commands and demonstrates a special movement:

  • Hands up (he demonstrates by stretching his hands forwards)

Again, the group repeats his command and does as demonstrated. Then, everybody is dancing where he is standing (swing one's hips) and singing the following text:

  • A zumzaza, A zumzaza, A zumzazaza-aha
  • A zumzaza, A zumzaza, A zumzazaza-aha

After that, the next round is started. Again, the lyrics are sung. Then, the leader repeats all movements and adds another one (so, one movement in the first round, two in the second, three in the third, etc.).


The following movements are suggested; remember that they have to be kept while dancing, what is especially funny for "tongue out".

  • Hands up (stretch hands forwards)
  • Thumbs up
  • Elbows back (press elbows against your hips, but stretch forearm still forwards)
  • Knees together
  • Head back
  • Tongue out

Of course, you could add other movements.
