Second Hand Dance are currently touring with their latest production. We Touch, We Play, We Dance is a celebratory dance performance for 0-3 year olds!
We went to see their performance at the OYAP Trust in Bicester via the The Mills Art Centre Banbury.
What happens in the We Touch, We Play, We Dance performance?
The four dancers made use of all the space within OYAP Trust. Moving around, the children are invited to join in throughout the interactive performance.
A live DJ plays music as the dancers respond to each child in turn. They gently encourage everyone to get involved, with big smiles, fluid dancing, high fives and direct interaction.
The show lasts 45-50 minutes with two performances. One for babies (0-12 months) and another for toddlers (1-3 years).
So, what did we think of We Touch, We Play, We Dance?
We absolutely adored our experience at We Touch, We Play, We Dance. We plan to see more Second Hand Dance performances if they tour within Oxfordshire or local counties.
The show was something truly special. It was wonderful to watch each child slowly come out of their shell. They quickly developed their confidence thanks to the gentle encouragement of the dancers.
The music featured changes in pace throughout, accompanied by beautiful choreography.
Our toddler adored the performance. It was quick to engage and the children are keen to get involved quickly.
It was a truly wonderful performance with lots of obvious thought and consideration in its production and execution. We’re very excited to see what Second Hand Dance do next.
