We are primary school dance specialists and we want to share our infectious passion for dance with as many teachers as possible! Bring us into your school to run regular dance activity, an INSET event or one-day dance experience. We have a wide range of dance resources and an informative blog for tips, videos and articles on our website.

Regular Dance Activity

Provide high quality dance teaching as part of your PE or art offer at your school. We deliver morning / afternoon sessions on a regular basis, lasting a half or whole term, that improve physical literacy, social skills, confidence and overall wellbeing.

Teacher CPD

Half day, whole day or twilight teacher training, focusing on how to deliver dance that is relevant and accessible to today’s children. Each event includes opportunities to create planning materials focused on your curriculum. All delegates receive a ‘Dance Class in a Box’ resource pack that contains lesson plans, music suggestions and relevant warm ups / cool downs. Open to all – no dance experience necessary.
