In my class, "Baile viernes" is many student's favorite day of the week! This is a great way to start a class or to use it as a brain break. They can be used in person or virtual to get students up and moving.

This product includes enough dance bell ringers for Spanish class for an entire year with 36 slides. There are some holiday dances that could be incorporated around Halloween or Christmas, and many that can be used any time in both Just Dance and real people form. Each one includes a link to the video and embedded video.

Please note you must have access to Youtube and the Internet to play the songs. They can be used as a quick 5-minute bell ringer as a fun classroom management routine.

**Please make sure to preview all songs before using. I have personally used all of these with my classes, but know that all school situations are different.

The videos in this dance resource are a mix of real people Zumba and Just dance in Spanish, with a few seasonal mixed in. If you prefer the newest videos, I would suggest Baile viernes 2021.


If you have active classes that needed movement and breaks, dance videos are perfect. It can start class on Friday as a weekly event known as baile viernes, or be used as a much-needed movement break any day of the week. It is especially important if you teach on a block schedule. It helps build a positive classroom community as well.


How do you get high schoolers to dance in class you ask? First and foremost as the teacher sets the example. You can make a fool of yourself learning the dances with them. Sometimes we might try a song and partway through the students decide they are over it. This is fine & usually because it is too hard, so you can quickly change to their favorite by request. I have had classes that were never as into dancing, which is fine. Finally, I have found it is a great way to get those Friday wiggles out at the beginning of class. This is especially important on game days and before long weekends.

  • Baile Viernes is a MUST HAVE for any Spanish classroom...It is the easiest thing to do and builds so much community, engagement, and a love for the culture - Samantha F

  • This is such a fun way to start class, especially on Fridays when all they want to do is go home. I sometimes have my classes do it all together and sometimes we do a competition to see which group of students can follow the dance moves the best. A fun and engaging way to expose your students to Latin and Spanish music. - Kate A

  • Thanks for doing the leg work of finding appropriate songs and videos to play in class! My students love the variety! - Jessica L
