During the global pandemic when many schools across the UK were on lockdown – it was vitally important for children to have some exercise, fun, and sense of normality still in their daily lives. That’s where our online dance workshops came in – and they are still going strong even though the restrictions are starting to lift!
We don’t want anyone to miss out on creative learning, and the physicality of our dance lessons. So we have adapted our teaching resources so that online teaching is a seamless experience for all involved.
Lesson planning for teachers and delivering class lessons online is draining – so why not let us do some of the hard work for you?!
So if you are on lockdown, or maybe it just suits you more to have session online – please get in touch to discuss your ideas…
“Thanks for doing the Google Classroom dance lessons for us today, they were fab and it all worked really well!” Amit Patel, Deputy Head at Smallwood School, London
