You could do a cute dance to the "The Ballad Of Johnny Appleseed" (from Music K-8, Vol. 9, No. 1). It's easily in AB form. You could display the verses on PowerPoint or in the program and have the kids sing the chorus as they dance.

Here's an idea off the top of my head:
Circle - boy, girl, boy, girl, or 1, 2, 1, 2
Verse (A)
8 beats CW
8 beats CCW
1's go into the circle and clap on beat 4
2's go into the circle and clap on beat 4
1's go out of the circle and clap on beat 4
2's go out of the circle and clap on beat 4
Chorus (B)
1's and 2's turn to face each other
Right arm swing partner in full circle 8 beats
left arm swing
