As children, we first make sense of the world physically. As we grow into adulthood, we lose much of our dependence on touch to observe and learn, as our other senses (like vision & hearing) become the dominant channels to our intellect and imagination.

ContaKids is a methodology that pushes the idea of using physical contact to develop a deeper form of communication between parents and their children, that both will find enjoyable.

By working with bodily movements, the children can enhance their motor skills and self-confidence, while the parents get to develop a bond of trust with their young.

ContaKids aims to foster confidence in our actions, by reinstating the physical abilities that we were born with.

This energy flows directly, in an unmediated form, to our little partners in the dance.

As we tend to lack it as adults, the hard work is ours to bear now 😉
