Education

Children love to move, create, play and make noise! Capoeira and Contemporary Dance are the perfect outlets for these skills, a place where they are nurtured, developed and valued.

What we can offer to schools and colleges:

* Fully qualified workshop leaders with full enhanced CRB checks and public liability insurance

* For capoeira: a native Brazilian teacher with over 15 years of experience!

* Free introductory demonstration (e.g. during an assembly)

* Free taster sessions

* After school clubs / extra-curricular clubs

* Workshops based on curriculum topics, such as Brazil, the Rainforest, South America, Multicultural Awareness, Languages and more!

* One off workshops or performance projects ideal for school carnivals, multicultural weeks, end of year shows, summer fairs and more!

* Regular classes suitable for PPA cover (for more information on how capoeira or contemporary dance classes can satisfy KS1 and KS2 National Curriculum guidelines for aspects of music, PE, PSHE and Modern Foreign Languages and how they can be used to explore and link to other curriculum topics please contact us.)

All of the above are tailored to the specific aims and needs of the school. Please let us know if you have an idea for a project and we’ll do our best to provide it!

Contact us to let us know what your aims are and we’ll get in touch to discuss how we can achieve them with you. Read our testimonials to hear how we’ve inspired previous participants.
