USING DANCE TO TEACH

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

There are many religious festivals from around the globe, and dance is a great way to make these religions come alive for your students, and to celebrate the diversity of the students you have in your school


In the dance workshops we will give an outline of the religious festival and any stories linked to it, the rituals and customs, as well as how dance is used in that festival and the significance of it.

We will play traditional music and where possible your teacher will wear a dance ‘costume’ to link in with the style of dance/country it’s from.

For example some of the religions or religious festivals we can teach for you are:

Buddhism:

Nirvana and Wesak – Thai dance or Indian dance workshops

Hunduism:

Diwali and Holi – Indian dance workshops

Judaism:

Passover, Hanukkah, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur – Israeli dance workshops

Islam:

Ramadan, Eid-Ul-Ahda – Indian dance workshops

Sikhism:

Vaisakhi, Birthday of Guru Nanak – Indian dance workshops

Christianity:

Lent, Easter, Christmas – Traditional English Country Dances

Chinese new Year:Chinese fan dance
