Let’s dance! All new Spanish song resource “Amiguito baila conmigo”

We’re at it again!  We’re releasing another all-new music video for young Spanish learners, and this one has baila written all over it.  So, let’s dance!

(Side note: If you missed our other recent song releases, you’ll want to check them out: Move your body, find the pañuelito, and tell us what you like.)

Left, right, up, down, baila

Amiguito baila conmigo - new Spanish song from Calico SpanishIn our newest video release, the boy and his little friend dance together.  They join hands and clap, which means you’ll get fun physical activity and repetitions of manos and dedos.  They move izquierda y derecha, arriba abajo y vuelta entera.  You can imagine how much fun children have with this song.  This is the favorite song at my daughter’s 4-year-old preschool class.  What can I say, at that age they love to dance and have few qualms about doing so!

A little Baile Viernes for the little ones?

If you’ve never heard of Baile Viernes, a quick perusal of Allison Weinhold’s blog will show you how she’s developed a routine of starting each Friday class with a dance, and a quick Google search would show you how understandably popular her idea has become across the Spanish teacher spectrum.  We all know that children love to dance as much as teenagers do, and in my opinion, this new release of Amiguito baila conmigo” is one of our best for starting any class on a fun, physical note – or for recapturing children’s attention when it’s lagging halfway through the allotted learning time!  (My other picks for this purpose would be Elefantes grandes and Todo mi cuerpo.)

Without further ado, give it a listen.  And then, give it a dance!
