DanceBugs:

DanceBugs is an all-inclusive and part competitive sport the allows all children to learn in a pressure free environment through physical activities and creative movements.  DanceBugs focuses on building confidence, social interaction, stamina, flexibility and enhancing the learning experience. We strive to allow every child to develop and gain new skills at their own pace emotionally and physically. Our curriculum packages are designed to support/enhance teachers with their dance skills or cover for PPA. We have a number of themes to work alongside your curriculum topics.

Early years – KS1

DanceBugs sessions are taught through story-based adventures using the child’s imagination and creativity. The classes include different resources (such as ribbons, hoops, balls and mats) to develop fine and gross motor skills. Ribbons become pirates’ flags, balls become planets and hoops become duck ponds. The use of equipment allows children to experience both sensory and physical movements.

KS2

We ensure all children learn in a safe environment by teaching different dance and acrobatic techniques, as well as movement patterns, sequences ,skills and learning to hold and support their students correctly with the right body alignments. Helping teachers understand the correct position to hold in Acro for both boys and girls bodies as they are different when teaching and spotting for skills. Children will also be able to earn rewards such as child of the week certificates and medals.

 

 

Programs available:

Dance, acrobatics and cheerleading:

We can also create dance and cheerleading routines for school competitions, these include pathways, partner work, stunts, basis gymnastic elements and teaching basis timing and rhythm to the music to create a 1.5 minuet routine in both genres. This is for a minimum of 10 weeks.

Within the sessions your teacher will have access to our class plans for the sessions our teacher will take the first 5 sessions so that your teacher can see how we take a class and make it fun, safe and how it fits into the curriculum. Each week your teacher will help and learn the step and movements in the session, then the final 5 weeks of the booking your teacher will take lead with the guidance of our coach to help grow the teacher in confidence for the specific subject.
