Protecting Childhood

Protecting Childhood

Our dance classes provide a safe space for children to play, imagine, lose concentration and just roll, leap, jump, skip or whatever their young bodies need to do.  Our Early Years work guides children through movement development patterns and allows them the freedom to take part or not.  We often allow them to lead and we copy their movements - to reflect back and validate their ideas.  I also find myself interested in the child who doesn’t take part but quietly observes until they feel comfortable enough to join in.  Increasingly, i think the choice to take part or not is vitally important and learning through observation is not to be underestimated.
