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

If you want to make a text, poem, story or play come alive, dance can do that. This in turn makes subjects clearer for your students, as it gives them a fresh way of looking at something.

Or if your class has written a poem and wants to develop it further, why not turn it into a movement based piece? We can give you the tools to make this happen in our fun using dance to teach English workshops.

English as a second language

These dance workshops can be especially good for children who might not have English as a first language. We turn a story into movement which everyone can easily understand and enjoy. Children love getting into different characters, and they can really let their imagination run wild.

World book Week

We have done many workshops for ‘World Book week’ in schools. In the past we have danced as Oompa Lumpa’s from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, we’ve 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 here for more info on these workshops.

English and dance blogs

Take a look at our recent blogs from schools we have worked with, using dance to teach English with a literacy theme.
