A creative dance program can be a fantastic way to get young people moving and learning at the same time.
Our workshops link to topics and themes from other areas of the curriculum; giving students the opportunity to explore their academic learning in a multi-sensory and creative way. This helps to bring the learning to life as well as enhancing their creative and critical thinking skills.
Our workshops always begin with a warm-up that gives the students skills in safe dance practises and group dynamics. We then guide the students through creative explorations and tasks that see them creating movement in response to a stimulus. The stimulus could be a topic or text they are exploring in class or an abstract movement idea. Each workshop then culminates in the students sharing the movement they have created with their peers and responding to the work of others.
If desired, we can mould the explorations and tasks from each lesson to create a piece of dance that can be performed for the wider school community at the end of a program. Alternatively, we can remove the pressure of a large performance and focus more on the creative process for the entire program.
"I think this experience was fantastic. I really liked how it was so free. Most dancing groups make you do what they do."
