TINY&mighty For big tiny people to celebrate their physical body and instinctual nature through movement-voice improvisation and somatic play. We explore our senses, saying hello to Space, Rhythm and Touch and how all this can lead into our dance: solo and together. We end with the power of being seen – an invitation to be performer or audience. TINY&mighty supports every child to feel at home in their body, play with autonomy and nourish group relationship through a dialogue of dance. 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. A fun and safe oasis for child and parent … a little piece of the village we all seek!
” more than just a dance class …”
TINY&mighty is led by dance artist and mother Sarah Kate Gardiner and has evolved with the generous and wise feedback in dialogue with engaged parents & toddlers. First born as a mama & baby group in 2014, co-initiated with mother/theatre maker Jasmin Hasler. It’s grown with workshops for toddlers & carers and a 3yr course for the youngsters of Het Speelateljee and their carer Olga Middendorp. Previous guest artists; musicians Hobe Lasai, Marc Nukoop and artist Maria Lepistö & The Animal Sound Society Choir. In late 2018 TINY&mighty was referenced during Olga’s Childrens Rights lecture at the European Parliament in Brussels.
Since 1995 Sarah Kate co-creates community dance projects that aim to resonate with humanity, collaborating with people 0-70 yrs, beginners and experienced, from all walks of life. She has a diploma in Youth Theatre Leadership, directed two youth dance companies, and led dance projects for many youth intitatives, working with young children and teenagers, including underpriviledged youth.
