FREE Dance Along taster videos for schools

Dance City has created a free series of video Dance Along tasters for young people aged 5 – 16.

Our Dance Along tasters are 15-20 minutes long and are a chance for schools and young people to meet the Dance City team, have fun and get moving.

We have something for everyone and will be releasing a new FREE video every Thursday on our (link) YouTube channel. Subscribe to the channel to be notified of new videos and follow the playlist (link) Dance Along.

The Dance Alongs include:

Dino Dance (Primary KS1/2) and Musical Theatre (Secondary KS3/4)

Street Dance (Primary KS1/2) and Contemporary Technique (Secondary KS3/4)

Musical Theatre (Primary KS1/2)and Contemporary Phrase (Secondary KS3/4)

India Images (Primary KS1/2) and Contemporary Floorwork (Secondary KS3/4)

Egyptian Shapes (Primary KS1/2) and Indian Images (Secondary KS3/4)

Our Dance Engagement team leading the tasters have a wealth of experience teaching dance in schools and community settings.

Dance City understands that remote learning can be a challenge for schools and parents, and we wanted to offer something to support teachers and ensure that young people are given the chance to dance.

We do hope you can join us, and we very much look forward to dancing with you and your young people.

‘It was my first experience of Dance City.  As head, I know that dance lessons had been going on….I had seen bits and bobs.  However, I was absolutely gobsmacked when I saw not only my school but the overall performance.  The quality and messages were superb. I’m sure we`ll be working with Dance City again.’

‘Excellent – very skilful delivery of the dance workshops pitched at the children’s level and led with a great deal of energy, humour and understanding of how to move the children on.’

‘The team were brilliant with the planning and communication regarding the event I knew exactly where we had to be, at what time, doing what activity and how much it would cost.’


Dance City in Schools

Your young people are at the heart of what we do here at Dance City!

Do you want to give your young people the opportunity to get physically active and creative whilst aiding their health and wellbeing? Would you like to help your students develop their self-esteem, self-expression, social skills and knowledge about a variety of themes linked to your creative curriculum?

We are passionate about creating and delivering dance opportunities for all and the transformations dance can bring. We offer workshops to schools (Nursery, Primary, Secondary, FE, HE and SEN) inside and outside of our landmark building to engage with people and champion best practice in participatory dance across the region.

Every year we deliver workshops to 30+ different schools across the North East, either at their venue or at Dance City.
