Part of the joy of dancing is feeling the air move around us. Help your young child notice and experiment with how it feels to move our bodies through space.
- Did you know that our bodies always move through air? It isn’t empty space; it’s filled with air that surrounds us. Wave your hands in the air. Can you feel it?
- Give your child a feather. The soft part is like our hair. Can you turn in a circle without having the feather flutter? Why do you think that happens?
- When we really feel the air moving around us, it can feel like flying
- Of course, having a hand out the car window – and feeling the force of it – is a required exercise.
