English Country Dancing

Traditional English country dancing is an exciting way to make PE lessons fun! It puts mathematical concepts such as shapes, patterns, sequences and numbers into practice. Linking movements together also helps with coordination, agility and memorisation. These dances are an excellent demonstration of English history and culture.

Working in pairs or groups, the students dance in time to exciting traditional music.. Older students might also enjoy writing their own dances using traditional movements and structures.

Alison can also provide CPD sessions for teachers. In addition to teaching a range of dances, she can suggest suitable music, appropriate warmups, ways of linking country dance to the rest of the curriculum, catering to different abilities and achieving high standards.
