I already made it clear in my last post that you don’t have to wait until Friday to dance in class. It’s important to get your students moving to help them stay in tuned with you. The Zumba routines below are easy to follow and the songs are very catchy.
You no longer need to wait until Friday to dance in Spanish class! Get your students moving any day and at any time. Dancing in class is an awesome brain break and also an opportunity to share some culture through music. Download the PowerPoint below to choose what rhythm to dance to in class. Make sure to use the PowerPoint in presentation mode.Click on the word “girar” to let the drums roll!
I also added some of my favorite songs so you don’t have to go all the way to YouTube to play them in class. Freestyle dancing works great during this activity!
Salsa: Vivir Mi Vida – Marc Anthony
Andina: Muñasquechay (Mi buen amor)- Los Kjarkas
Rock: Chayanne- Madre Tierra
Vallenato: Jorge Celedón – La Invitación
