Attended a single session with a 1-year-old

Hi, I thought the concept could be great but it needs some additions for the kids to foster engagement. Balloons, bubbles, dress ups, something for the kids to play with which will then encourage them to engage with the dance. Otherwise it seemed they were playing with stacked up chairs and tables because there was nothing for them to do. Good luck
Ensemble responded:
Hello, thanks for your feedback and ideas to improve the sessions. We don't have many resources beyond ourselves for the moment, but hope we can create more ways to inspire engagement in the future!

We have never attended a group quite like this - the children get to dance with the dancers in whatever way they like, and my two (ages 4 and 2) absolutely loved it! The teachers are really engaging with the kids and it was totally different for me - I could sit down and watch my very active boys be entertained and enjoy themselves.
Ensemble responded:
Thanks for your lovely response, Louise. We hope to see you all again!
