Our dance in education work currently falls into the following strands:
- DANCE IN SCHOOLS
We work with schools to develop bespoke projects / sessions to meet their needs. For example, developing physical literacy or bringing subject areas to life.
Following a recent project with Llanfaes CP School, Mr Davies (the Head) said the following:
- After School Clubs
Following taster sessions in South Powys primaries, we are now setting up new after school clubs. If you would like to find out if an after school club would work at your school, please get in touch.
- 5 x 60 Activity
Through its Climbing Higher vision, the Welsh Assembly Government has laid down the fitness gauntlet by setting the target of seeing 90% of children taking part in regular and frequent activity by 2020.
We support the work of Powys County Council Sports Development team on 5 x 60 activity by delivering dance in high schools. We are also currently leading a 5 x 60 dance project in south Powys primaries.
- Touring Shows
Every two years we produce a show that tours schools in Powys. We make shows that are aligned to the curriculum and aim to inspire learning. In 2016, FLYING ATOMS flew into over 20 schools in Powys, and was performed to over 1,000 learners.
If you would like to speak to us about coming into your school, please call Amanda on 01597 824 370 or email amanda(at)dawnspowysdance(dot)org.
