Game Instructions

Children stand facing each other in a circle. One kid is chosen to stand in the middle. The children serenade this kid with this song, while she skips around the inside of the circle looking for a dance partner. When the song ends, she chooses her partner, then dances in the middle of the circle with her partner as the rest of the children sing Naranja Dulce.



Many thanks to Camilo Albornoz from Mojiganga for contributing this song and for sending us their recording of it.
