What is Contakids?

I'm glad you asked.

Contakids is a method of physical communication for child and caregiver. It has been developed by Itay Yatuv, a contact improvisation dancer and choreographer. It started as a fun practice he did with his daughter when she was about 2 years old, and then more and more people were asking him to show how he plays with her. He then named these fun games as "hug and roll", "the elevator", etc. and started teaching them all over the world.

Using the principles of contact improvisation these games are not only fun, but also safe to do with your toddler. Join us in a free trial class, to discover them for yourself.
