Five Fun Dances to Try in Spanish Class

I use music to welcome my students to my classroom. This week, I welcomed my second graders to class with "Vivir Mi Vida" by Marc Anthony. One of my students said he wished he knew how to dance to the rhythm of the song, so I took action! I took a few minutes at the beginning of the class to show them the basic salsa step. It was five minutes of fun and a chance to share some culture with them - plus they got to move a lot before settling down for class.


I found some videos on YouTube that might be helpful if you decide to teach your students some steps.

Salsa
 


Cha-Cha-Chá


Waka Waka



La Macarena



And if you feel like you want your students to learn a full choreography, here is
Asereje.

Have fun!
Carolina
