A native of Puerto Rico, Maddie Welch spent her early years developing her interests in music, theater and languages. After settling in Massachusetts and becoming the mother of two bilingual children, she found that there were very few high quality, early childhood Spanish immersion programs being offered. It was out of this desire to connect her own children to their heritage and culture that Canta y Baila Conmigo was born.
After years of offering her program in the Boston area, Maddie teamed up with Missy Smith, a long time Music Together director in Miami, Florida. Together they have brought CyBC to the four corners of the U.S., as well as, Europe. In 2016, they began a collaboration with Music Together®, and are now a proud member of the Music Together Worldwide® family of programs.
