The Bare Toed Dance Company is a CIC based in Newcastle.
The artists – Lynn Campbell, Rachel Kurtz and Jo Templey weave together their wide experience to offer playful movement opportunities and aerial dance performance for children and families. We also offer professional development for adults working with children.
Our work is supported by a wealth of knowledge and research into child development and has grown from the company member’s combined experience and influences.
Movement play is a natural way for young children to learn about themselves, others and the world they live in. It is crucial to the development of healthy, happy, thriving children and the Bare Toed Dance Company are committed to offering opportunities to move, dance and play creatively.
All our sessions support social and language development, creativity, physical health, developmental movement and emotional wellbeing.
Our work offers creative movement play opportunities for very young babies up to children age 11.
