Families with babies and young children must be able to access the arts. Bach Tots offers families this access adding creativity, fun and inspiration to life through rich visual performance, high artistic integrity, diverse cultural experience, in a "fuss-friendly" setting.
Founded in 2011, Bach Tots is a one of a kind program that runs a regular season of dance-for-young audiences in Calgary and area, tours throughout Alberta for festivals and events, and has performed most recently at a festival in Manama, Bahrain. Bach Tots is continually praised for its originality, welcoming atmosphere to infants and toddlers, and interactive play offered after each short performance. Photo by Ben Laird
