We Touch, We Play, We Dance is a mesmerising, engaging and celebratory dance-show. The four dancers weave around the space, inviting babies and children to join them in a warm hearted and playful performance. With music mixed by a live DJ, the performers respond to the children, guiding them through a series of exchanges and encounters, with high fives, hugs and dancing.

A beautifully crafted, gentle and playful experience that reaffirms the power of touch and dance. It's a show filled with surprises and joys where children can listen and watch or let loose and join in.
