Workshops for Schools

We are the UK's leading specialists in delivering cross-curricular Dance and R.E. (Christianity) in schools. Our workshops and interactive performances provide much needed resources for:

- exciting ways for children and staff to engage with R.E. (Christianity)

- children to access education in other ways than at a desk

- physical movement, creativity and self-expression for children

Citizenship and PSHE runs through everything that we do, and our workshops and performances aim to grow children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through dance. We value young people, giving them a voice and helping them to thrive.

Probably the best dance I’ve seen in any school, ever!

I usually get embarrassed by dancing but then I did not want to leave.

How our workshops work

A workshop day involves two of our highly experienced teachers visiting your school to work with your pupils during a school day. We have teachers based across the country so are able to deliver workshops nationwide. We can either work with up to 4 or 5 classes for one-off workshops or we can work more intensively with 1 or 2 classes. 

Workshops can be delivered in one-off days or we can stay for a longer residency and create a unique performance with your pupils. For shorter projects the day can finish with an informal sharing to the rest of the school or parents. Themes can be selected from our popular themes below, or the focus and learning objective can be tailor made especially for you. 

An example timetable for a one-off workshop day would be:

9:00 - 9:45 Year 1

9:50 - 10:40 Year 2

10:45 - 11:45 Year 3

Lunch

13:00 - 14:00 Year 4

14:05 - 15:15 Year 5

Light of the World

“You are the light of the world.” Matthew 5:14. RE dance workshops inspiring children to follow Jesus’ example by being lights in the world.
Children beamed with joy as they danced and showed wonderful confidence and focus. Their facial expressions were powerful and alongside the thought provoking music , it truly was captivating to watch this performance . Some of our SEN children thrived during this performance - it really was their time to shine .
The dance teachers are phenomenal- we are in awe of their skill and the speed at which they created such a polished performance. It was pure magic!
