TINY&mighty – Movement & Dance to empower toddler & parent
TINY&mighty Movement & Dance is a workshop aimed at joyfully supporting parents with their toddlers. A unique opportunity to empower and nurture our sensing, dancing body & soul, whilst supporting our child’s autonomy. We dance through release technique, developmental movement, structured improvisation, contact and voice. TINY&mighty is carefully structured and tuned to the group and the moment, collectively we keep a sharp focus and dynamic momentum that nourishes the movers and those who weave in and out. Whether we move together or our little ones follow their own path, we stay present to each sound and movement, all welcome as dance partners. TINY&mighty can be a liberating, fun, safe oasis for both parent and child … a little piece of the village tribe we all seek!

This methodology has been tested during a research period and developed further through feedback and dialogue with engaged parents & toddlers. First born as a mama & baby group in 2014, co-initiated with mother/theatre maker Jasmin Hasler. This workshop is loosely inspired by the book ‘The Continuum Concept’ by Jean Liedloff and TINY&mighty Tuesdays, a private class that runs in collaboration with a small anthroposophic day care in Amsterdam.
