What is Contakids?
CONTAKIDS is a group that gathers for movement practice, partnering games and play shared between adult and child. No special experience is required. With passion and full presence at play I will be guiding you through your time. CONTAKIDS is where a deeper and enjoyable form of communication between adult and child is developed.
Tactility is a fundamental sensory experience of our environment. As children, we discover the world through our physical senses. We have five senses and there is a tendency for senses like vision and hearing to become the dominant channels to our intellect and imagination.
CONTAKIDS invites you to explore your sense of touch and rediscover the skin and body language as one of your greatest communication tools.

How does the practice look like?
• Program: 45 minutes practice + 15 minutes free movement and cuddles
• Routine entails warm up for adults, partner games, group and duo dynamics
• We dance, we slide and swoop, we go upside down, roll, jump, fall and run. Both Adult and child can expect to be challenged, make friends and have a lot of fun.
• Unlike most classes for kids, the adult is as much a part of the scenario as the Little One - taking full advantage of the special adult / child bond present at this stage in a child's life
