DANCE, FITNESS, ARTS AND WELLBEING IN SCHOOLS
One of your staff must be present to assist in all of our workshops.
The workshop can be divided up into six 50 minute workshops, from 9:30 - 3:30 or 4 longer classes, or 2 half days, depending on the workshop.
WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU
All we ask for is a working CD player and a clear open hall for the group to move in.
Please ensure that the group are in suitable fitness clothing, no jewellery, either trainers or bare feet.
For yoga and capoeira mats are preferable.
Creative Dance Workshop
Our e-safety workshops use drama, discussion and movement. Our teachers have a wonderful rapport with the kids and strike up group discussions with the use of certain tools and games.
WHAT THE SCHOOLS ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS:
'"We were very happy with the way in which the teacher engages the classes and manages the children's behaviour. The group is very focused and the children thoroughly enjoy the sessions."

This engaging and fun workshop focusses on the following key themes;
Choosing online friends wisely
Knowing how to block someone
Recognising cyber bullying
Reporting anything that makes you feel uncomfortable/scared/sad
Understanding that you should never share personal information (understanding what this is) and report people that ask for passwords/mobile numbers/addresses/photos/parents credit card details/money.
Understanding that the web offers many wonderful things and information but it also like everything has parts that are not for children so if in doubt ask an adult for help to prevent anything unfortunate happening.
He can also discuss everyone's online tattoo with KS2; what this means and key points to help them think about this when they are posting/chatting/sending pictures.
Our teacher will open a discussion with the group to find out what they already know and then move on to exploring the balance of power within a relationshop with movement and body language and action and reaction exercises to start to focus on how our physical state affects our mental state and that of others, even the most subtle ones.
We will then work thought the information above using games and role play and exersizes.
We then end with a positive relationship group exersize to allow the group to experience the difference between a positive and supportive group and how that helps the individual and the whole school.
