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 Spring 2020 De colores 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 bi-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 twice 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 for Rosa Elena to include in her videos/ livestreams!
Activities and videos posted on the Playground are designed to accompany your De colores songbook and audio recording. As part of your tuition, you will receive a songbook with CD and download code or, if you prefer, an electronic version of the songbook as well as a unique code for downloading and streaming your music. Rosa Elena will be creating online content for your families that you all can enjoy on your own time in the form of a livestream or a pre-recorded video posted in our closed Facebook Group AND she will be making music with your family once a week over Zoom for 15-20 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 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 5 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.
