Try some circle dances (partners are non-existant or change frequently) or folk dances. Southern "Play Parties" (no dancing allowed in some parts of the south, so they called it a play party; yeah, I know), Virginia Reel and it's variations. Simple square dances would be good, too depending on the number of students in your class (8 to a square).

You can learn these dances along with your students and there can be a great social studies tie-in. Google the country or area you'd like a dance to come from and check out the directions.
