Education

From the youngest class of primary schools children, perhaps taking their first ever steps onto a dance floor, to students who wish to pursue their art at degree level, we are here to support and facilitate their learning, helping them to grow and develop through the power of dance.

Artsmark and Arts Award

We are proud to be supporting schools and education settings on their Artsmark journey, inspiring children and young people to create, experience, and participate in great arts and culture.

Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools and education settings, awarded by Arts Council England, recognising their commitment to high quality arts and cultural education. Find out more about Artsmark at www.artsmark.org.uk.

Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that supports anyone aged up to 25 to grow as artists and arts leaders, inspiring them to connect with and take part in the wider arts world through taking challenges in an art form – from fashion to digital art, pottery to poetry.

Moving Habitats

Moving Habitats are three 30-minute bitesize films for primary school aged children (Key Stages 1 and 2), which explore environmental issues through creative dance and what’s more, are FREE. Differentiation and Extension tasks are available in the ‘EXTRA’ supporting document and outlines how to tailor the films/tasks to your student’s needs.

 

The Moving Habitats films have been developed to support cross-curricular learning and are a great way to either introduce or embed understanding of the impact of environmental issues on three habitats – The Arctic and Melting Ice Caps, Oceans and Plastic Pollution, and Coasts and Rising Sea Levels.
