Dance and Movement

In person date to be released for 2021

Have you a desire to teach children dance and movement? Want some fresh ideas? Would like the opportunity to learn from others and grow in creativity and skills?

Then join us for a fabulous day delving into some practical ways to plan, implement and teach children dance and movement using your faith.

Core topics that will be covered -

  • Practicalities of teaching children and core things to put into practice when teaching.
  • Exciting and themed warm ups
  • Planning and delivering under 5s workshop
  • Planning and delivering a children’s dance
  • Using creative prayer with children and dancing.

No prior experience of teaching children needed. The day will suit all abilities and will be designed that everyone can access the resources. There will be a significant amount of group work as well as practical work. It will offer the chance to demonstrate some teaching skills and gain feedback should you wish.

As always, the main emphasis will be on fun, we want the day to be an encouragement for you to try and interact with the children in your church using dance and movement and have the confidence to try new things and trust the skills and Jesus with what you have to give!

A date for 2021 will be set soon. Sign up here to be the first to find out when it's set.

Whose it for?

Men, women and young people over 16 years.

What level is it?

This course is our Level One training course.

This is our entry level training day, suitable for those with have been teaching a while or have no prior teaching or workshop delivery experience. We do, however, encourage participants to have a foundation of dance and movement knowledge. These events allow an initial introduction to the topic and will leave you with a clear idea about what the topic entails, and hopefully a hunger to find out more!

This course is a great chance to build a firm foundation about why we dance, leading from the heart. Something that is always good to revisit even if you've been dancing a while. All participants will receive a certificate.
