Peak Ballet provides dance lessons and workshops in Primary Schools for KS1 & 2. Lara has also worked with pre-school providers (playgroups, stay & play groups) giving weekly or ad hoc classes using stimulating themes and appropriate carefully chosen music for Foundation Stage children.
Previous work in schools has given local Primary aged pupils the opportunity to experience basic dance training within their school PE lessons, funded by their PE and Sports Premium Grant.
“dance is the second most popular physical activity following football….through which young people of all learning abilities can express their own identities and cultures. Dance enables young people to gain artistic skills and discipline… [develops] their ability in physical interaction, team working, problem solving, observing, evaluating, verbal and non-verbal communication“.
Art Council England , 2016
Lessons usually take the format of half-termly plans which teach basic dance skills using cross-curricular links to engage pupils’ imaginations and creativity. Individual workshops can also be arranged to complement a scheme of work.

This small class of KS2 pupils (ages 7-11) had a series of 6 one-hourly lessons learning basic dance moves. In addition, they choreographed sequences which were encompassed into this final piece of work, ‘The Potter Waltz”, which they showcased at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School’s Arts Festival in February 2017 to rapturous applause!
