DanceFit project Washingborough Academy

Bookings for DanceFit now being taken!

7th September 2017

artsNK Dance team are now taking bookings from primary schools for their DanceFit project for the 2017/18 academic year. The programme uses dance as the medium to explore healthy lifestyles and diet, increasing activity levels and boosting wellbeing. 

Through a weekly programme dance artists deliver various fun dance styles, creative tasks, partner work, and cardiovascular exercises all with a view to increasing fitness and boosting self-esteem. Families, parents & carers are invited to take part, with log books issued to diary progress and their individual journeys of change. The children taking part also enjoy the additional benefits of social interaction, new friendships made and importantly lots of fun.

At the end of the project at each school we will signpost outwards to numerous supporting activities/projects or initiatives for children to progress to.

artsNK launched the programme with four primary schools in the 2017  spring/summer term and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive:

‘We love our Weekly DanceFit programme. Getting our pupils enegised!’ Washingborough Academy

‘Children have been inspired to do more and understand their 5 a day’. Billinghay Primary School.

Booking

Prices are flexible according to the length of the project, to discuss it taking place in your school please get in contact with Sophie Arnold – Sophie.arnold@litc.org.uk
