with Kiren Virdee.
Programmed by Siobhan Davies Studios.
A fun and creative space for little ones and their carers to dance together.
These sessions are all about collaborative play, guided by our specialist teacher Kiren Virdee. In Creative Contemporary we encourage free exploration of a range of sensory stimuli. It is a space for adults and children alike to discover personal forms of expression and movement. Our classes support children to learn creatively, developing not only their physical skills but their social and emotional awareness too.
To support creativity, curiosity and confident joyous movement we will:
- discover how we express ourselves and communicate with movement and dance
- build our awareness and sensitivity to others, practicing coordination and collaboration
- dance to many different rhythms and hear instruments from around the world
- share our discoveries, learning together and developing skills in both watching and performing
