What is Canta y Baila Conmigo?

Designed for beginners and native speakers alike, CyBC creates a playful, interactive atmosphere where language learning is integrated naturally and organically into the musical experience.

Patricia is a proud Latin Canadian, born and raised in Venezuela, where she grew up having fun and surrounded by nature, music, her sister, many cousins, neighbours -with whom she would put together dance and singing shows quite often. Patricia moved to Toronto in 2012 looking for a safe, and multicultural place to live, to belong.
She and her partner fell in love with Barrie and moved here in 2021. Since becoming a mom in the same year, she started wanting to raise her child bilingual and multicultural, with a strong sense of her Latin Hispanic Heritage, deeply feeling a need to honor and share her beloved music and culture. Luckily in her journey of searching for Music and Spanish activities and groups, she was introduced to Maddie- the founder of Canta y Baila Conmigo- who had the same critical need 15 years ago while raising her children in Boston in the USA.
Patricia decided to lead her dream and bring a taste of the Hispanic culture to all families in the Barrie area with 0 to 5yrs olds that are looking to be part of a community that prioritizes having fun, multiculturalism, and developing basic musical sense for all.
She is hoping to provide an authentic, warm, and rich Hispanic experience to all families in our community!
