“Babies and young children are like the R & D division of the human species.” Alison Gopnik

“My son is 12 months old… I suspected he’d enjoy a tailored dance program, but nothing prepared me for the depth of his experience. He was transfixed, thoroughly immersed in the show and participated when he felt it was right to do so. I was teary watching him absorb the goings on. The dancers were just fluid magic…”

“… a room filled with attentive, curious and emotionally alive babies and parents. All artists executed themselves with such warmth, presence, and skill”. Brendan Ross, Artistic Director, Out of the Box 2014
