Is this you?…

Do you find it difficult to teach dance with your children?  Don’t have a dance background?  Need to modernise your dance knowledge?

JumpStart’s Dance INSET packages will help you fill in the gaps in your knowledge and build your confidence…even if you’ve never danced before!

We will arm you with an array of practical and instantly usable ideas that are accessible to boys, linked to curriculum topics and are fun, creative and relevant to today’s Primary School children.

Topics we explore on a training event include…

  • What is dance?  And what are movement objectives?
  • What topics are suitable for primary-aged children and how to make them feel ‘current’ and relevant
  • How to develop children’s physical literacy
  • How to structure a dance class
  • How to create a simple dance performance
  • Advice on creating and developing choreography
  • Warm up and cool down ideas
  • Support and advice with choosing music
  • Ideas for delivering an after-school dance club

Would you rather feel like Katheryn Trzcinski from The Merton Primary School, Syston who has been on JumpStart dance training events for the last 3 years…

We think it’s important that the topics we feature in our dance training complement the Primary School curriculum.  Our sessions are relevant to today’s children and feel ‘current’, whilst helping children to explore their classroom topics hands-on.
