Which year groups are your street dance workshops suitable for?
Our dance workshops are accessible for all year groups: reception to year 13. Our most popular year groups for dance workshops are year 1 to year 6, but we can create engaging workshops suited to any age and level.
How long are your street dance workshops for schools?
Our dance workshops are what ever length you need them to be to fit your objectives. Our most popular workshops are 1 hour per class / year group as introduction to street dance. Or a full week of workshops working towards a performance piece or larger objectives.
How many students can take part in a workshop?
We recommend no more than 35 at a time to ensure each student gets the attention they deserve. However we can accommodate larger groups and add additional teaching staff from our team.
Do you offer additional secondary or primary school dance resources?
Yes we certainly can. Dependant on your objective, we can provide you with pre and post workshop activities and documents to support students learning and provide teachers with access to deeper knowledge.
Are your dance workshops suitable for use with the Primary Schools PE and Sport Premium?
Absolutely! These sessions certainly meet the criteria for the premium: They benefit primary aged students, they diversify your PE education, they are 'cool' and fun for the children therefore encouraging full participation, and most importantly they encourage development of healthy active lifestyles.
Is dance good for students mental wellbeing as well as physical?
100%, here's 5 reasons why street dance improves mental wellbeing:
1. Dance improves memory
Dance encourages new neural connection to be made, keeping memory functioning at it’s best!
2. Dance activates the brains reward centres
You can get those feel-good endorphins jumping with any heart-pumping activity, but dance has a whole extra
benefit: studies show that music and dance is primal, they naturally activate the reward centres in the brain.
3. Dance makes you more intelligent
Intelligence is essentially decision making. To improve intelligence you can do activities that require rapid
decision making such a dance: Which way to step? What texture to use? What count does that go on?
4. Dance reduces stress and anxiety
Calming anxiety can be tough, yet calm can come from feel-good distractions such as dance. Plus, music can be a
soothing addition too. When we dance, tension releases rather than continuing to build.
5. Dance increases your confidence
Dance is a perfect example of how children can learn how practice pays off. Through initial instruction,
then encouragement to try themselves, it can lead to them seeing themselves capable of accomplishing
challenging things. A sense of accomplishment = increased confidence.
