INSET: Using dance to explore children's literature

This INSET introduces a toolkit which will give you additional skills and confidence to investigate stories and characters in a new way. This can be a full day or twilight INSET course.

Course overview

Dance is a form of storytelling, and in musical theatre the choreographer plays a special role in bringing the story to life. The active nature of a dancers' involvement with the story is particularly transferrable to the classroom, and is especially engaging for those who struggle with more traditional literacy lessons.

The INSET is an expansion on the skills and methodology that our popular Bringing Books to Life and Poetry in Motion workshops were built on.

This INSET can optionally be followed by dance workshop days in school where our choreographer (who will have led the INSET) can run class by class dance workshops alongside each class teacher, allowing the INSET to be put into practice and extended in a mentored environment.
