Overview

The creation of a professional therapist and former dancer, Danceplay brings to parents a new and wonderful way for interacting with their very young children—even before verbal exchange has fully begun. Designed for 18-months—to four-year-olds—and their mothers and fathers—it is a stimulating approach to fostering a child's social and intellectual growth through creative physical play. The exercises, based on the insights and knowledge of developmental psychologists, progress from simple movements suitable for the 18-month-old, to sequences involving complex ideas and actions for the four-year-old.

Level One begins with stretching and limbering and gradually moves to an exploration of the body and its parts. In Level Two the child learns to distinguish self from environment through a variety of danceplays. And the focus of Level Three is integration, as games, music, and movement develop the ability to perceive a situation as a complex experience. Touching is emphasized throughout, and the fun and sharing add immeasurably to the everyday interaction between parent and child.

Charming line drawings illustrate an easy-to-follow text, and necessary equipment is limited to simple household items. It is difficult to imagine an easier, more pleasurable way to help your child develop as he or she grows.
