This barefoot theatre dance class for toddlers/ infants and their caregivers offers a space for play, movement, rhythm and song. The 45 min class is a space for toddlers to build their movement confidence and their own unique style of movement expression with the support of their caregiver/ dance partner.
There is a strong community emphasis in this class and as a group we journey though the basics of African dance together. This class has some taught choreography but is largely based on guided improvisation as a sense of freedom in movement is essential at this early age to support participants in developing confidence and self-esteem for the dance class environment and beyond.
This class has been created to developmentally support the toddlers emotional, cognitive , physical and psychological selfhood through movement, song and dance and play.
