A gentle performance for 0-3 year olds to discover the power of dance

Touch connects, contains and stimulates. Touch is how we build relationships.

‘Touch’ is an improvised and interactive dance-show performed by four dancers and a DJ. Adults and children are offered the chance to watch, play and dance as the performers move delightfully and deftly to a live mixed music score. A beautifully crafted, gentle and playful experience for adults and children that reaffirms the power of touch and dance in a digital age.

Duration: Approx. 45mins

For ages 0-3*

*Please note that performances are ‘walkers’ or ‘pre-walkers’. Pre-walker shows are gentle in nature and for children aged 4 months to walking. If you are bringing children of multiple ages, opt for the ‘walker’ performances.
