Primary schoolchildren across Plymouth are set to explore the Mayflower 400 values of Freedom, Humanity, Imagination and the Future through dance.
Plymouth Dance will work with pupils as part of physical education curriculum as part of the anniversary commemorations of the voyage of the Mayflower, which made its final stop in Plymouth before journeying to the New World.
Working with specialist Primary School Dance Teachers, Plymouth Dance will provide a programme called Help! I Cant Teach Dance including:
Teachers and pupils learn new dance movements, whilst developing strength and flexibility in body and mind led by professional educational dancers. In addition, dance improves children’s coordination, creativity and spacial awareness. Pupils can learn as they move to the curriculum based films which cover subjects within science, literacy, culture & physical activity.
Primary Schools across Plymouth can discuss Help! I Cant Teach Dance being delivered by contacting contact June Gamble via firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 07818 518079.
Plymouth Dance is the city's dance development agency and is supported by cultural and education partners across Plymouth. It aims to connect, create and celebrate dance in Plymouth by delivering city-wide partnership projects that use dance as a vehicle for individual, cultural, organisational and social change.
You'll be the first to hear the latest Mayflower news, events, and more.
