Schools Workshops

Springs Dance Company specialises in cross-curricular dance, in particular with Religious Education (RE), Citizenship and PSHE. Our theme-based workshops often link to our current performance programme and to the Literacy and Drama curriculum.

We deliver creative, inspiring, fun and energetic performances, workshops and assemblies. Workshops can be delivered in short sessions or we can stay for a longer residency and create a unique performance with your pupils. Themes can be selected from our popular themes below, or the focus and learning objective can be tailor made especially for you.

Schools can also opt to include a short or full-length performance by Springs and Q&A discussions that help young people focus on certain topics.

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 allowing them to thrive.

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

You Are Special

Based on Max Lucado’s book You Are Special, children will follow the story of the Wemmick who struggles to fit in to the Wemmick village. One day his life changes forever as he learns the meaning of the words ‘You are special’! The story tackles the big issue of self-esteem and creates opportunities to discuss ideas about self-worth and how we treat others.
