Activities for children and young people

Workshops and courses can be tailored for all ages (under 14s require a parental disclaimer), and cover learning only or to include performance. Sessions can include learning moves, short combinations or complete dances; understanding rhythms; using props. Work with under 14s focusses on the Folkloric tradition including group work. Young people aged 14 and over can also work with adult Belly Dance styles which promote wellbeing and positive body image. 1:1 tuition can also be undertaken.

How we work with schools

Workshops or courses can be provided as one-off sessions, or form part of the curriculum if appropriate. History & Culture and Understanding Rhythm modules can also be included as well as practical dance sessions; these can also be provided as one-off sessions for schools. A course of lessons can provide a complete piece of choreography for performance at assemblies or evening events. Group or 1:1 tuition can be offered to those with specific body image issues.
