A show (for children 1 to 4 years old) that takes you to the magical world of butterflies; colorful, skillful and mysterious. They usually fly slowly and elegantly. They fly through rain and a light breeze and are visibly enjoying the magical music that surrounds them. They can hide and spontaneously appear again. Where have they been and what did they find there? Maybe we can create butterflies together after the show? Spacious foyer for drinks and something to eat and also a large playground for the children. Parking is free in the weekends, 10 ct/ hr on weekdays.

Dance workshop for parents and kids focusing on recognising and expressing emotions.

How can we see how someone else is feeling without them telling us?
