(with Dance With Your Hands) - Thousands of students across the country have already performed LIGHT THE CANDLES ALL AROUND THE WORLD with their schools and the response is overwhelming. Perfect as a concert closer, this song offers everything you would expect from a universally themed seasonal piece. It can be performed either in unison, or with an optional solo or second part. The song begins gently and quietly, but builds throughout to a marvelously inspiring ending. Some teachers have told us that their students and audience members were clapping and in tears by the end of it. Include your own candle-lighting ceremony and you have a guaranteed winner for your winter program.
Jazz, the macarena, and a lively Middle Eastern motif combine in DANCE WITH YOUR HANDS to get your kids on their feet, moving and singing. The song is entirely unison and includes a special dance section for your performers to show off their best moves. The teaching notes are extensive and offer suggestions for performing the macarena or variations of it. The outstanding recording features the sounds of a cookin' jazz ensemble, complete with enthusiastic Latin percussion. Give your students a new outlet for their macarena skills and they'll thank you for it.
