Supporting delivery and enhancing performing arts curriculum in schools

 

HOW WE CAN SUPPORT YOU

Our workshops and classes are suitable for all ages of children. Each session is tailored to meet your brief and the needs of your group.

In general, we run workshops that support, enrich and enhance each key stage’s syllabus or, for those that prefer, we run workshops that are not about the curriculum but are just for the love and enjoyment of performing arts!

We have a large network of amazing teachers who are all professional performers as well as being experienced teachers, and so we can offer high quality workshops in an array of styles and genres.

We offer classes during the day either at your school or here at NLPAC with our professional dance studios, or we offer workshops after school at your venue. Whichever works best for you and your school.

Whether it is for education, enrichment, training or simply for fun, NLPAC can provide performing arts workshops tailored to suit your requirements and your budget.

Please click on the boxes below for further information on our dance workshops and classes in each key stage. We also run drama, singing and music workshops but, as we know that Dance teachers and Dance space is the primary need/want for schools, we focus on that. If you are interested in drama, singing and music workshops, please call for further information.


DANCE


KEY STAGE 1

The curriculum

“Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others. They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and against others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations. Pupils should be taught to:

  • master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • participate in team games, developing simple tactics for attacking and defending
  • perform dances using simple movement patterns.”

 

Our KS1 Objectives – What we offer

Our KS1 dance workshops focus on simple dance steps and movement patterns in a range of dance styles such as Creative Dance, Jazz, Modern, Contemporary, Street Dance and Musical Theatre.

They primarily focus on fun, building confidence and enjoyment so that, whilst teaching the children the necessary steps, techniques and movement patterns, the workshops instil a love of dance and performing arts in the students.

We aim to encourage all students to want to dance more, whether that is by further classes and training or just breaking out in to dance moves whenever they hear a rhythm!
