Dance

Signing dance looks a bit like a pair of swinging Elvis legs on the dance floor. To make the dance sign, take your non-dominant hand and hold it out in front of you with the palm side facing up. With your dominant hand, extend your middle and index fingers like an upside down 'V' and swing them back and forth above your open palm.

SIGN USAGE

Babies love dancing. We really like the Kindermusik program. One interesting thing I learned there is that babies like doing the same dance to the same music, time and again. When you are about to start doing your dance, make the sign.

Flash Card

Take a little twirl around the kitchen, or jive down to the bedroom, as you do the baby sign for dance. Babies love dancing and find this sign to be a favorite.

    Baby signs are great to train your dog too…….my doggie has learned to “sit” and now “dance”………..

    ADMIN – Hi Cheryl,

    Animal trainers often use signs rather than verbal commands. Signs resonate with many animals like dogs because that is how they primarily communicate (rather than using words).

    This website is great! I knew some signs but this is really helping with basics that I can use with my 2 yr old and 5 mth old. Do you have the signs for shapes on here anywhere?
