Dances

Why Dance? 

Dancing with your baby helps in the development of balance, space and body awarenes. Dance and songs provide opportunities for babies to link words and movement together which is a good way to reinforce learning. 

Dancing provides many loving and fun bonding opportunities. Look directly into your babies eyes as you talk, dance and sing.

 

Dancing Top Tips

Protect yourself
Lift and move safely. Spin slowly and allow you and your baby's bodies to adjust.

 

Support your baby's body
Be careful of those fragile neck bones and muscles. 

 

You can dance to whatever music you prefer!
Remember to mix it up – sometimes slow and quiet, other times rock and roll or jazz! Choose the music that suits your baby’s mood. If you want your baby to settle down, then try a lullaby or a waltz!
