Canta y Baila Conmigo® Spanish Music Classes in Rye

Take a journey into Spanish language and its cultures through the magical world of music. Canta y Baila Conmigo® (CyBC) simultaneously brings you Spanish immersion and music education in a joyful class experience.  Though similar to our mixed-age Music Together® classes in format, CyBC is its own unique curriculum and experience.  In fact, many families enjoy participating in both classes during the same session.

Designed for beginners and native speakers alike, Canta y Baila Conmigo creates a playful, interactive atmosphere where language learning is integrated naturally and organically into the musical experience. Our structured immersion model introduces Spanish the way children learn any language: through play and meaningful interactions with the adults they love. 

With CyBC you and your child will be transported as you sing, dance and play to the irresistible sounds and rhythms of Spanish speaking cultures. Every semester features a new Canta y Baila Conmigo collection of folk classics and familiar children's songs, along with new adaptations of traditional songs and rhymes. The repertoire has been carefully chosen to represent a wide variety of Spanish-speaking regions and cultures, including Andean, Mexican, Afro-Hispano, Caribbean, Castilian, Argentine, and more.

Our unique curriculum offers:

  • A fun and motivating Spanish immersion experience
  • Class activities that promote cognitive, language, motor, and social skills
  • Exposure through music to the cultures and traditions of Spanish-speaking countries
  • Beautifully recorded music collections carefully selected to represent the wide variety of Spanish musical traditions and genres
  • An illustrated Spanish-language family songbook including sheet music, lyrics, and information about the origins of the songs
  • English Language supplement with song translations, vocabulary and grammar points for families learning Spanish
