A Fun Show on a Beautiful Day

Since our first sing-along where we hid in the tunnel because it rained, we've had incredibly gorgeous weather each Sunday morning. It actually feels like we take a bit of a back seat to just the pleasure of sitting out in Park on such a lovely day.

We had a really fun time this week with a lot of new families. Despite Kylen and Chloe being under the weather and Fati and I getting little sleep, we kept everything together and had a good time. The parents were great helping us sing the songs and play instruments and even dance around.

Another really great thing is that with such nice weather, our sing-along has become a sing-along and hang-out. We get a chance to meet other families from the area and have some adult conversations while our kids run around and play.

Two more Sundays to go and then what? I think we'll have to figure that out soon.

Come sing Spanish songs and learn Spanish for free!

You Are: A parent, a child (optimal age: 1 to 4 years old), ready to dance, move, laugh, play instruments, and sing easy to learn Spanish songs.

We Are: Fati, a “mamá“, from Argentina, and Charles, a “dada”, from the U.S. Our children, Chloe (2) and Kylen (1),

The Drill: We magically transport you to a park in Argentina, with a printed sheet of song lyrics. Fati will lead the songs and teach you dance steps. Charles will play guitar, sing some harmonies, and pretend to be a wolf.

Our Goal: Our children have allowed us to rediscover the fun and excitement of music and dance. And we want to share it with you!

Where and When: Every Sunday in August, from 11:00 to 11:45 am in Prospect Park.

RSVP so we have a head count: Email: abbasubi@gmail.com

Meet us: Enter the Park at Grand Army Plaza and walk across the track, down the little hill to the grass. That’s the Long Meadow. Look for the red balloons!
