"Body Speak is an activity where play is taken seriously. Play is one of the most fundamental activities for the development of a child and in the adult phase it is our inner child that makes our external life more relaxed.
Most of the time communication will be non-verbal, By being spontaneous, we create a free space for play to develop. Play is one of the main resources that allow children to expand their creativity and their individual imaginary world.
