Everyday is a school day, and learning new skills and updating old ones is important for teachers to keep fresh and ahead of the pupils! And for pupils to truly benefit from dance activity, regular participation is needed.
Our resources enhance your enjoyment of seeing a ballet by offering an insight into our productions and preparing you for the experience of going to the theatre. They can be used before or after seeing a production. For teachers they also provide practical ideas for teaching dance in the classroom.
Our cross-curricular projects enable pupils to physically explore concepts or ideas they might otherwise find difficult to grasp in a classroom setting through fun and creative workshops.

Following the inspiring 2012 Olympics, sport has become an exciting focus for many young people. Our sport and dance workshops offer a creative way to explore sports, to encourage healthy living and to meet key objectives on the PE/Dance Curriculum.
Workshops are a fun introduction to ballet for all ages through an exploration of scenes from our productions. Using movement and creative dance, they offer the opportunity to develop pupils' spatial awareness, communication and teamwork skills, and get everyone moving as part of a healthier lifestyle.
Our Early Years project introduces young children to dance through music, storytelling and multisensory play. It enables the centres’ staff to develop the confidence and skills to deliver movement activities themselves as a regular part of their work, while allowing the children to respond creatively to the exploration of a story.  The project includes staff training and is based on stories such as Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
