Work with Siobhan Davies Dance to learn simple techniques for incorporating kinaesthetic learning into your teaching practise by using an accessible, replicable methodology that supports your pupils’ learning, engages their imagination, and gets them moving.

Using the ‘thinking body’ as the stimulus this twilight workshop provides you with a toolkit of tasks and resources for connecting dance to neuroscience and the curriculum. The workshop will begin with a guided visit to Siobhan Davies Dance performance installation, you will then experience example practical dance sessions for EYFS, KS1 and KS2.

With no taught steps, these adaptable approaches will enable you to develop and structure movement embedded in the school curriculum and beyond, supported by a detailed resource pack.
