Today we went to our new dance class in our new town. It was magical. From the moment I saw the place, smelt the beautiful oils when walking in the door and saw the teacher, elegant professional, yet warm to the children and somehow earthy, I knew it would be wonderful.
My children were so excited to get into the room. When it came to Edna opening the door they rushed in. Parents don't go in this dance/yoga class, though I was welcome to since it was their first class. I chose not to, as I felt I would be a distraction and I felt like letting the magical studio to be their magical space. My children in a new environment with new people completely happy and ready to dance. And there I was in the front of the studio all by myself with 45 min free. Breath. Strange. Good. Though I have loved watching my littleones in dance class the last couple of years.
The children had a wonderful class. Finding a beautiful creative dance class is something I prioritise and am particular about. It may be the physio in me, but I feel creative movement is so wonderful for our 1-7 year olds. In this age they are "in their body". Their body is the main focus of the life force development. They feel and process everything in their body. They explore everything with their body. They express every emotion happiness joy, frustration with their body. They live in their body. Being able to imagine and express themselves with their body, play with dance can only be for them, a wonderful free joyful place to Be.
