Dance in Spanish Class

Are you tired of the same old routine in your Spanish classes? It’s time to shake things up and add a fun twist to your lessons with catchy Just Dance songs! Incorporating music and movement into your language learning to enhance engagement and improve retention.

I know Spanish teachers are always on the lookout for innovative ways to engage students and make language learning an enjoyable experience. One of my favorite ways is to integrate music and dance into the classroom.

Long-time Mis Clases Locas readers know I have been posing about music and dancing in Spanish class since 2014. Baile viernes! Dance in Spanish class was the 2nd post on this site. You can also see 5 Ways to use Dance in any classroom.

I have also posted blogs with dance songs for specific occasions.

The benefits of incorporating dance into Spanish Class

Learning a new language can sometimes feel like a daunting task. However, by incorporating music and dance into Spanish class it can often make the process much more enjoyable.

Music has a unique ability to stimulate the brain and enhance learning. When we listen to music, our brains release dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure and reward. This not only makes learning more enjoyable but helps to improve retention. Combining music with learning a language is a powerful tool.

Plus, dance adds a physical element to the learning process. When students move their bodies, they engage multiple senses and activate different areas of the brain. This enhances their cognitive abilities and helps them to retain information more effectively. Additionally, dance promotes creativity, and self-expression, and can help build a positive classroom community. Students are more likely to take risks such as speaking a new language in front of others, if they all feel comfortable together.

Spanish Just Dance Videos

Just Dance in Spanish Class

Just Dance is a popular video game that allows players to mimic the dance moves of on-screen characters. It features a wide variety of songs from different genres and languages, including Spanish.

I know many students and teachers love specifically using Spanish Just Dance videos in class. Students are comfortable following along with the Just Dance videos in Spanish. At one school I taught at the students would only dance along with the Just Dance videos. (At the first school I taught at the students preferred real people’s Zumba dances to follow along).

You do not have to have any kind of special program. You can project Just Dance videos from YouTube.

If you are looking for ready-to-go slides for dancing in Spanish class, I have tons of slideshows all ready to go. My newest is Baile viernes 2024, with a total of 40 dance slides. Or you can get Spanish Bell Ringers for a Year of Warm Up Activities.
