We run a wide variety of exciting dance and movement classes in schools including Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision.
We work with each school to deliver themes which enrich school learning and the National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
On offer are dance styles and fitness classes including Disco, Dance Acrobatics, Street, Break Dance, Hip Hop, Cheerleading, Aerobics, Fusion, DiscoFit™, Teen Fitness, Taekwondo dance, Jive, Yoga, Urban Dance, Percussion and Stamp and Synergy Dance Mix – building children and young people’s confidence, skills, fitness and sense of well-being.
Our action-packed classes are full of energy, fun and flair for all and encourage creativity and imagination through dance. Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) support at lunch times can help autistic children and any children suffering from exclusion. Our 45-minute lunch time sessions target inactive children who may especially benefit from an inclusive and
specialist dance and movement class.
We can also support children who have reported incidences of bullying or ‘friendship exclusion’ or who would benefit from additional supervision. The ethos of our work is to celebrate and respect the fact that each person is unique, and our specially trained instructors work closely with each child to cultivate his or her unique talents.
All of our courses aim to:
- improve health and well-being
- develop literacy, numeracy and ICT skills
- boost confidence
- help children make friends
- encourage resilience
- build social skills
- increase knowledge and understanding of cultural difference, learning and physical disability across the social spectrum
- counter gender stereotypes
- build teamwork skills through group-led choreography
- encourage healthy lifestyles.
Instructors take special requests for music and popular dance styles within the group each term, to stay in touch with trends and tastes.
We have taken into consideration the following points when planning the workshops and classes:
- Sensory processing issues with loud noises – music will be played at a level suitable for all.
- Simple and clear instructions, with visual supports for those with learning difficulties or who require that extra visual prompt.
- A maximum of 12 children per session.
- Depending on the age and SEN/disability of the child, classes may be split to enable better support of individual needs.
- Sessions preferably to take place at the beginning of a school week to limit attending when children are more tired at the end of the week.
- Sessions will take place at local schools which are able to cater for car parking and access needs.

HOW WE WORK
Our company signature is our Synergy Dance Club™ (Synergy Dance Mix™) which is an introduction to a mix of dance styles. It is hugely popular in our schools. It includes group and partner formations, dance technique, stretches and improvisation. There are opportunities to perform dance showcases and to present in assemblies and at end of term shows. Instructors tailor these clubs for pupils, taking special requests for favourite dance styles or music.
