USING DANCE TO TEACH

HISTORY

Dance is a fantastic way to make history come alive


We teach a large range of dance styles from different periods in history, from Medieval dance to present day.

Your teacher will bring in photos and video clips to show the students, and also dress in a dance costume (where possible) to help bring the period in history to life for your students.

We use music from the period and talk about the instruments used, and talk about the dance culture at that time.

Some examples of historical dance styles we teach:

  • 17th & 18th Centuries: Court Dances, Tudor dance, Medieval, Baroque, Regency
  • 1920’s: Charleston
  • 1930’s: Swing, Jitterbug, Waltz and other Ballroom styles
  • 1940’s: Lindy Hop
  • 1950’s: Rock and Roll
  • 1960’s: Twist, Hand Jive
  • 1970’s: Disco,
  • 1980’s: Hip Hop, Breakdance, Contemporary

You can have one dance style taught to all your classes, or a different dance style taught to different classes throughout the school. We can start the day off with an assembly or end with a performance by your students to show everyone their dances.
