Toddlers' Tango grew out of my experience with dance therapy and my active involvement in my own children's musical development. While studying dance therapy, I discovered the mental and physical joys of feeling safe, happy and free to move and sing. Such feeling develops self-confidence, which is the foundation that enables us to receive and achieve life's challenges. I learned as well, from my work with children, that there is a strong relationship between exposure to music, self-confidence, and increased cognitive abilities. My four children showed me the importance and the benefits of having music and movement in their lives.
Beginning in their infancy, I introduced them to music with songs, dancing and instruments. As soon as their tiny hands could grasp, they used a wooden spoon as an instrument; it was a teether and also a light-weight drumming stick that they could use to beat time and make wonderful music.
