Video transcript: Hi, and welcome to Sign Baby Sign. This week’s word is dance.
D-A-N-C-E. For dance, this (shows left hand) would represent your floor, palm up. And then this (shows right hand) the “V” hand would represent your feet except your going to turn it down on the dance floor and just go from left to right and say “dance”.
