Join us online in the Canta y Balia Conmigo Family Playground!
There is no substitute for the magic we create when we get together in person as a CyBC community. Until we can meet again in our classes, we are here to support you in your musical bilingual journey. We have created a NEW online “play space” for our families, so that you can stay active and connected and enjoy the current song collection at home as a family. We are calling this play space the CyBC Family Playground because there will be content for the whole family to enjoy!
The main feature of our Playground will be the weekly Playdate modules, which will include a combination of the following:
- Sing-along videos with program creator Maddie Welch
- Messages and songs from our CyBC Teacher Rosa Elena
- Spanish lessons for grown-ups and older kids
- Downloadable coloring and activity pages
- Craft and project ideas related to our songs
- Bonus interactive games and contests
New Playdate modules will be added to the Playground once a week during the first 8 weeks of the sessions and in the last two weeks, we will revisit the previous modules. All modules from the session will be available to you. In the last two weeks, your children can request their favorite songs on Zoom.
Activities and videos posted on the Playground are designed to accompany your songbook and audio recording for the current collection. As part of your tuition, you will receive a songbook with CD as well as a code for downloading and streaming your music. Your teacher, Rosa Elena, will be making music with your family once a week over Zoom for 30 minutes to keep the connection with your children (and with you) strong in the absence of an in-person contact.
It is our wish and plan to get back into the classroom when it feels safe to do so, but in the meantime, we are confident that the “Canta y Baila Conmigo Family Playground” online program will become a treasured routine at home with the whole family engaged and learning! Please let us know if you have any questions, we would LOVE to talk to you in more detail about Canta y Baila Conmigo Family Playground!
Take a journey into the Spanish language and its cultures through the magical world of music. With Canta y Baila Conmigo, you and your child will be transported as you sing, dance and play to the irresistible sounds and rhythms of Spanish speaking cultures. Canta y Baila Conmigo is a unique curriculum with dual, complementary goals of music education and language immersion. Designed for beginners and native speakers alike, Canta y Baila Conmigo creates a playful, interactive atmosphere where language learning is integrated naturally and organically in the musical experience.
Canta y Baila Conmigo classes are conducted entirely in Spanish by experienced teacher/musicians. Each semester features a collection of carefully selected folk classics, familiar children's songs, and new adaptations of traditional songs and rhymes. Families receive a CD and a songbook containing Spanish lyrics, sheet music, cultural notes, and an English language supplement for families learning Spanish.
Una clase para niños hasta los 6 años acompañados por un adulto. Esta clase está diseñada para fomentar tanto el desarrollo del idioma español como la destreza cultural de los niños a través de canciones infantiles y música tradicional de España y Latinoamérica. Es ideal para familias bilingües que buscan un ámbito auténtico donde compartir en español con sus niños así como con otros miembros de la comunidad hispanoparlante.
Esta clase se ofrece completamente en español para crear una experiencia de inmersión total. Sin embargo, la clase no está limitada a personas con completa fluidez en español. Estudiantes principiantes e intermedios del idioma que quieran aprender junto con sus niños podrán disfrutar de un ambiente divertido, seguro y acogedor donde envolverse en el idioma y las tradiciones musicales del mundo hispano. Los participantes recibirán un cancionero y CD creado especialmente para cada sesión.
