Cuento y Canto are classes in Spanish for children (ages 3 and up) and their families, including stories told with table puppets, finger plays, rhymes, and songs in Spanish.

IMG_2074 (1)These gentle stories and songs are ideal for young children. The rhythmic and repetitive sounds, combined with simple movements and the story’s images, help develop children’s cognitive abilities and their emotional connection to the language, through the joy and magic of play. Rhymes and songs like these can support children’s language, communication, attention, concentration, memory, future academic success, and emotional development, especially when you, the parents, learn them and continue them at home!

Cuento, Canto y Danza, held at Calliope Dance Studio, adds the Calliope method to the class, using dance and creative movement especially designed to meet the needs of young children, while building ability in Spanish. The rhymes and songs combined with movement support children’s natural connection to their own bodies, others and space, coordination, communication skills, attention and memory. Enjoy dancing to Latin rhythms and benefit from a second language at a young age!

green3Samba & Brazilian Dance at Calliope Dance Studio (in English) adds Brazilian dance to the Calliope method. With samba’s poses students feel the confidence of a queen, the strong rhythm of a heartbeat. Samba’s off-the-beat polyrhythms stimulate children’s minds, like learning a new language. In this class, children will learn the samba basic step, how to move to the different drums, to follow the breaks, and to solo. Build your child’s confidence in a musical moment of total joy!
