What are our Workshops like?
Dance City can deliver a wide range of one-off workshop sessions or longer term workshop packages to meet your needs.
There are many benefits to including dance within the delivery of your curriculum. As well as encouraging your students to be physically active, dance can boost confidence and self-esteem, promote creativity and self-expression, develop social skills, promote learning about different cultures and encourage students to work together regardless of ability.
Did you know that Dance City has the biggest programme of professional dance performances outside London?
We present live dance performances by regional, national and international companies in our 250 seat theatre. From companies such as Motionhouse and Jasmin Vardimon Company, who are on the GCSE curriculum, to productions targeting specific age groups, there is something for everyone. Tickets to performances start at just £8.00 (for under 18’s) and all groups get one ticket free in every 10.
What makes us a great choice?
Dance City is the National Dance Development organisation for the North East region and is supported by Arts Council England and Newcastle City Council.
We can help you to plan and evaluate how dance can support your school development plans and we can offer CPD training for your teachers to enable them to develop their own dance teaching skills. All of our teachers are highly qualified, DBS for children and checked and skilled to give you and your students the best possible experience.
Dance City can also support towards Arts Award and Artsmark. See our website for more details.
