Jay Sand -- All Around This World

I'm Jay Sand, musician, children's music teacher and very proud dad of three daughters. I live in Philadelphia where I teach All Around This World global music and world cultures classes to children in my neighborhood. Because of this thing they call the Internet, I can also teach you and your kids anywhere!

In "Kids Explore Latin America" we explore this musical part of the globe by taking a tour from the Southern tip of Chile up to Mexico then back down south to Brazil. While we enjoy some music from Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, we mainly leave the Caribbean to star in its own full season of adventure. In our lessons we visit:

— Chile: the longest, thinnest country in the world, where we longly and thinly prance around like roosters courting chickens while dancing “the Chilean national dance,” the cueca.

— Argentina: we dare to be dramatic while dancing the tango.

— Uruguay: we land on the pampas (plains) of Uruguay and commune with the most mellow of all cowboys, the Uruguayan gauchos.

— Ecuador: we dance the bomba balancing empty wine bottles on our heads–okay, in class we use beanbags.

— Colombia: we time-warp to dance three generations of cumbia.

— Honduras: we shake our bottoms with abandon as we dance a modern version of the Garifuna punta.

— Mexico: we each don an impressive (imaginary) headdress to honor the earth with an Aztec dance.

— The Guianas: we celebrate the walking-ist of all the world’s four day walking festivals–Suriname’s Wandelmars!

— Venezuela: we visit the Yanomami and learn how to count to 10 Yanomamo-style, using just three numbers and our hands

— Brazil: we end our tour in Brazil where the kick, leap and cartwheel through the air,as we play/dance/”do” capoeira.

No one will be turned away from All Around This World courses due to lack of funds. Discounts and scholarships are available! Check out the pricing secton below for details. Bottom line: if you want to sing with me, we'll make it happen.

Enjoy!!
