INSET: Using Dance to Explore Children's Literature


For EYFS, KS1 and KS2 teachers

(The autumn dates for this INSET will be confirmed in the next few weeks.)

Join us at the London Palladium to explore the relationship between dance and literacy.

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 introduces a toolkit which will give you additional skills and confidence to investigate stories and characters in a new way, and will be an expansion on the skills and methodology that our popular Bringing Books to Life        and Poetry in Motion  workshops were built on.
