Every baby arrives on this planet expecting partnership, and every child is genetically coded to be one half of that sacred first partnership.
Dance With Me in the Heart offers guidelines for parents and teachers in following their hearts. It is 'heart intelligence' that weaves warm, loving partnerships between adults and babies, and it is this first partnership that lays the blueprint for every other relationship to follow. We adults are the senior dance partner, and our babies are relying on us to get the steps of the Heart Dance right.
