Dance can be fun, social, creative and inclusive and evidence shows it improves mental and physical health, particularly improving brain function and memory. Girls in Leeds are significantly more inactive than boys with less than half meeting the 60 minutes a day recommendation. Dance is a popular form of physical activity with girls and can help to close the gender gap in physical activity. The Primary Dance Network will look at how Dance can be delivered effectively across a school, considering curriculum, progression and assessment.
Over three sessions, the network will provide delegates with an opportunity to reflect, discuss and share best practice with colleagues from other schools.
To build pupil skills and understanding of Dance, pupils need to experience and explore a range of dance forms. Session 3 will explore Dance styles from different cultures and traditions.
