Days of dance

Our days of dance provide your school with an inspiring and creative day exploring a chosen theme or dance style. We can work with up to 4 year groups throughout the day, or a specific class or key stage to create a 'dance in a day', with opportunities to perform within school.

After school clubs
Our Extra-Curricular workshops provide fun, vibrant and engaging dance workshops for any given year group/key stage.
Designed to enrich your after-school provision, our Extra-Curricular sessions can run for a series of weeks for either 1 or 2 hours after school.

Projects with schools
We often partner with schools on funded projects. Previously we have been funded by Arts Council England, City of York Council, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Big Local Lottery and Lottery Community Grants. Pupils have performed at York Theatre Royal, York Art Gallery and Festival Hall.

Choreographing the curriculum
Our In-Curricular workshops provide engaging and inspiring creative dance experience to any given year group/key stage, tailored specifically to the needs of your group. We bring learning to life through dance. Sessions can take place over a series of weeks focusing on a specific theme or subject from your school curriculum.

Professional Development
Refresh your dance teaching toolkit. Our CPD equips teachers with the confidence and ability to teach exciting and engaging dance classes without having to know ‘dance steps’ or ‘specific styles.’ We guide teachers through a range of creative and pupil-led tasks which allow all learners to be challenged and to gain a sense of achievement within every lesson.
Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival
Give your students an amazing experience and take part in Yorkshire Schools Dance Festival. We can support teachers to create choreography or can work with students directly to make the dance piece that they will perform on the day.
