Dance in Schools
Innovative delivery & superior dance plans provided in the West Midlands
…within Warwickshire, Solihull and the surrounding West Midlands area.
Dance is a creative activity that uses the kinaesthetic mode (bodily movement) with imagination in order to create and perform. It complements other forms of intelligence and provides a vehicle for young people to physically express and communicate their ideas, identity and culture. It broadens their understanding about themselves and the society in which they live.
We believe that all young people across England should have access to high quality dance in schools.
In March 2008, the government responded to Tony Hall’s dance review with a bold ambition, ‘We want every young person to have access to the highest quality dance teaching at every stage of their development.’ Arabesque School of Dance shares this vision and wants to work with organisations, teachers and schools to make this happen.
If you are a teacher faced with the challenging task of offering dance classes to your pupils or wish to broaden their curriculum, or just offer additional dance and fitness classes; whatever the need, we are able to offer a broad range of dance programmes covering the full age range of students, from single dance sessions and master classes through to a fixed number of sessions or weekly dance classes, during the academic day or even after school dance clubs. We can even offer training to teachers and leaders to build their confidence in delivering our class plans or even creating their own.
Our staff have a full grasp of classroom management and task delivery.
We offer teachers and schools many different kinds of support to deliver a rich dance experience for their students. All of our comprehensive dance plans require zero preparation from the teacher and are compliant with the requirements of the National Curriculum.
We have a range of activities and classes devised to address healthy school initiatives, positive play, increased physical activity, PPA Cover, examination support and extended curriculum.
We are happy to visit your school or organisation to implement any dance initiative or national training programme. Simply Contact us.
