Baby Tango – a dance performance and a dance for babies
Baby Tango combines a show experience intended for babies, based on a shared dance session for babies and their companions. Tango is a feeling, it is about listening, a shared flow of movement, surrendering, leading and being led. Baby Tango deals with the relationship between the baby and the parent, which is intense, wonderful, wild, sensitive and unique. It is a state of understanding without words, where movements, gestures, emotions, voices and sounds express what is essential – since there are no shared words yet. Baby Tango is a moment of interaction, communication and love.
