Transformational Street Dance
We believe that Dance can enable a wide range of young people to be more active as well as be a powerful platform for us to impart life skills to young people. We provide a wide range of Dance disciplines which allows students to explore a range of movements, build and define new skills and experience dance in a variety of forms to gain interest. Sessions are fun and vibrant and encourage the personality of each individual to be released and celebrated. Each Dance session delivered by a KICK Coach will also embed a KICK value throughout to encourage each pupil to be challenged in their thinking, their attitude and their approach.
Our Educational Aims Our programme follows 5 key themes to ensure our provision provides excellent education for young people. The five themes are:
Dance for All - Engage and challenge all pupils through breadth and depth of Dance and physical activities.
Personal Development - Improve health, wellbeing and social skills of young people.
Academic Integration - Embrace Dance to engage young people in other forms of study and awareness.
Community - Engage young people in their surrounding community through physical activities.
Outstanding delivery - Position our young people at the forefront of the best Sport development in youth education in the UK.
We believe that through active and exciting dance provision, we can see young people further engage with education and have an enriched experience of school. We deliver Dance lessons as well as breakfast, lunchtime and after school clubs in a range of dance disciplines. Each half-term our Transformational Dance curriculum enables learners to focus on a different style. They are taught the techniques of each style and are given opportunities to choreograph their own dance routines to demonstrate what they have learnt. We seek to develop the confidence of each learner by allowing Dance freestyle activities in the session. This enables them to create and find movement that is natural to their bodies and within the context of Dance.
