Air Moving

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.
