Movement and dance programme for infants (4-12 months) and their parents.

Led by Clare Battersby (aka Fairy Clare) and Liz Battersby.

This programme aims to:
- Explore the joy of movement and dance with your baby in a caring environment
- Enhance the uniquely intimate and trusting relationship of babies and parents
- Extend infants’ pleasure in movement and dance
- Support infants’ sense of their own identity

Learning through movement, dance, and play is vital to infants’ lives. As one of the “Hundred Languages of Children”, dance has the potential to engage all infants and this programme offers a unique way for parents to learn with their baby. We will explain a little about the Reggio Emilia approach and about dance as a “language” that enhances babies’ learning, and Clare will share her creative ideas to guide parents in exploring movement and dance with their babies.

In 2015, Clare and Liz visited the Malaguzzi Centre in Reggio Emilia, Italy to learn more about the world-famous Reggio approach to infants’ and young children’s learning, and Copenhagen, where they presented at the Dance and the Child Conference: daCi 2015. Dancing with Your Baby will integrate some of the wonderful ideas Clare and Liz encountered there for engaging infants in movement and dance.

Creativity is a symbol, a spirit that blooms continuously. We don't know when a child will reach for the spirit, but what we can do is guide a child along the path that will lead the child closer within reach of the creative spirit.

Loris Malaguzzi - Founder, Reggio Emilia pedagogy.
