Real Music. Real Language. Real Learning.
Canta y Baila Conmigo® is a Spanish language and culture program with dual, complementary goals of music development and Spanish acquisition. It is both a music class in Spanish and a family language immersion experience. CyBC introduces the Spanish language through the musical traditions of Spanish-speaking countries.
What makes Canta y Baila Conmigo different?
Many programs teach vocabulary using songs. We pride ourselves in teaching language through music. We take music education seriously, and we present it in the context of language immersion. Children and adults learn language naturally and organically through the music activities, song lyrics, and the interactions in class.
Language learning through immersion is natural and ongoing, so our collections are not sequential. Basic key vocabulary is used and repeated every semester. Each collection also adds themes and special concepts that enrich language learning no matter which semester you join the class.
Our families receive beautiful, professionally recorded music collections carefully selected to represent the wide variety of Hispanic musical traditions and genres. The take-home family songbook includes music notation, lyrics and information about the origins of the songs in both Spanish and English.
