(1-3 sessions per class)
These one-session workshops will ignite your students’ love for movement and music. Forget 5-6-7-8 or complex dance moves, these classes are designed for students to experience success and feel motivated to stay active with their classmates. Discover a mix of dance styles from around the world (Hip Hop, Bollywood, Tango, Latin, Funk, Top 40) and spark imaginations as students move to their favourite chart-topping songs to develop physical literacy and fundamental movement skills. Watch confidence soar as each student claims their “Bubble of Awesome” and follow the 3 Rules of PLAY: Be Positive. Be Fun. Be Yourself!
(4-5 sessions per class)
Let us teach your dance unit! DANCEPL3Y Residencies follow the Teaching Dance for Understanding model that allows students to be engaged and active learners as they explore a variety of dance styles. They’ll discover the Elements of Dance, create their own dance moves and work together to prepare a dance performance that shows their understanding of curriculum expectations. Each Dance Unit has a different theme, Grades 1-3 learners "Dance Across the Decades", Grades 4-6 students "Discover World Cultures through Dance" and Grade 7-9 students experience "Epic Mash-Ups". All DANCEPL3Y Residencies include lesson plans for teachers, a lunch-time workshop, Dances for DPA Videos, assessment rubrics and 4-5 days of high-energy dance lessons taught by Certified Instructors.
