    and be recognised as a leader in the field of Dance Development.

    We have been working for over 15 years with a vast range of education providers in Derby and Derbyshire, engaging children and young people in the curriculum and beyond.

    We know that dance and movement enhances all areas of physical, social and emotional development, as well as promoting cultural awareness and understanding.

    Dance and movement gives children the freedom to be creative and express themselves whilst developing essential skills of agility, balance and control.

    Commission us and we will deCommission us and we will develop bespoke projects and services to suit the needs of learners in your nursery, school, college or alternative education setting. Our practitioners will work with you to utilise the National Curriculum and the Early Learning Goals to devise projects, workshops or classes which are innovative, challenging and fun.

    We will help you to deliver key physical education objectives such as physical literacy, team work and fundamental movement skills, as well as cross-curricular topics.

    These sessions offer staff the opportunity to develop their confidence, ideas and skills in delivering dance lessons or workshops in and beyond the curriculum. This can be done through individual or group mentoring sessions or whole school INSET.

    The best CPD with teachers and TAs is when they help deliver PE with an expert and then implement this themselves in a new way.

    Early Years Foundation StageChildren are born to move, play and dance. They explore and learn by using their imagination and challenging the boundaries around them. Our approach to dance and movement enables children to develop fundamental physical, social and emotional skills, which in turn has a positive effect on their learning and progress. In our sessions we provide a safe environment in which children can be imaginative and develop confidence.

    Specialised Dda pSpecialised Dda practitioners will devise activities according to the needs of your learners, creating sessions which incorporate the Early Learning Goals from the National Curriculum, linking them to topics in your nursery, pre-school or Key Stage 1 classes.

    I found Katherine's sessions to be age-appropriate, creative and I found Katherine's sessions to be age-appropriate, creative and dynamic. She was clearly in tune with the physical, social, emotional and communication needs of the children. I was inspired by her motivation, positive energy and ability to provide a space for children to develop and explore their self-awareness through the art of dance and movement.
