KS3/4 Dance - Introducing Dance at KS3



This programme takes a look at how one school in east London is using workshops to increase awareness of dance at Key Stage 3.

Year 8 pupils at Jo Richardson School are introduced to different styles of dance including Street, Lindy Hop and Bharata Natyam (South Indian) during a two-day programme designed to raise dance awareness.

Dance artist and teacher Suba Subramaniam talks with PE teacher and deputy head Lisa Keane, dance specialist Anna Hope and dance artists Frank Wilson and Leon Hazelwood about teaching dance to this age range.

We watch dance workshops in action and hear from the dance artists, teachers and pupils about what they have learnt.

In a final performance, pupils present short dance pieces they have created during the two-day course.
