USING DANCE TO TEACH

ENGLISH

We can create dance around any subject, so the written word is a great inspiration to us


If you want to make a text or play come alive, dance can do that, which in turn makes subjects clearer for your students.

We recently did a workshop taking the ‘Potion’ Scene from Romeo and Juliet and making it into a creative dance. Please see our blog for more info about this exciting workshop.

Or if your class has written a poem and wants to develop it further, why not turn it into a movement based piece?

These dance workshops can be especially good for children who might not have English as a first language, as we turn a story into movement which everyone can easily understand.

We have done many workshops for ‘World Book week’ in schools. In the past we have danced as Umpa Lumpa’s from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, all turned into bears on ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’, and also taken some of Keates’ poems and made some moving dance performances, to name a few.

Take a look at our recent blog on a fantastic day we had in a school for their World Book Day.

So let us know if you have a piece of text or story that you want to develop, and we can help you turn it into a dance….
