What is Itay offering at Small Awakenings 2014?
To play, to roll, to rely on, to let go, to fall, to get up, to laugh..
In class we’ll play fun games with our children which will involve lots of
touch and contact between the parent and the child. Those experiences might
give the child an opportunity to improve physical skills such as hanging,
climbing and rolling.
The learning process in the class is also one where we, as parents, learn to
rely on ourselves in the way we work and protect our child. It’s also a
chance for us to practice to allow our children to experience, discover and
learn new things by themselves.
Parents are not required to have dance or movement experience.
