Need Help Picking a Song!

So I am a dance instructor and I was asked to choreograph 2 dances for a performance
(it's just a random performance) in April (a 3-6 year old dance and a 7-11 year old dance). The studio owner said I could choose any style I would like and any song that I would like to do - it does not have to go with any theme. This is too broad for me and I am stuck!

For the younger ones, it'll be easy because I just need to do something cutesy. I was thinking a Shirley Temple song. But any song recommendations are welcome!

For 7-11yr olds I am having a really hard time picking out a song and what style I want to do. I was thinking of just choosing a popular song with the kids right now, but I have no idea what that would be! The only thing I can think of is "Can't Stop the Feeling" by Justin Timberlake but I don't really want to choreograph to that song... any other songs I have in mind are several years old, but I guess that doesn't really matter.

Any help and recommendations would be great!

Check out tv themes for music for the older group. Or remixes of popular songs. The song Run This Town by Lucy Hale is cute and I’ve used it for 8-9 yrs olds. Try Music Works unlimited for great kid songs
