Schools Dance Workshops

"Connect, Move, Learn" Programme

Thanks to the Cultural Recovery Fund (April 2021), Cheshire Dance will be running heavily subsidised Dance Workshops for just 8 schools in the Cheshire West and Chester area.



Through these workshops, the organisation looks to work with a small selection of schools that would like to develop a relationship with (or reconnect with) a dance organisation for mutual short and long term benefits.

The “Connect, Move, Learn” programme is a unique opportunity for schools to experience how dance can be integrated across the curriculum. The programme will include a bespoke session for one year group, a CPD wellbeing workshop for the teachers and a Senior Leader’s meeting to assess how the art form can be embedding into student’s school learning going forwards.

As a successful recipient of Arts Council England’s Cultural Recovery Fund, Cheshire Dance is offering the following package for the cost of just £50 during the months of May and June (only).


Connect, Move, Learn Workshops:

  • x1 Dance Workshop for One Class Group - A fun, wellbeing session to enable a group to express themselves and move. (Duration: 1 hour)
  • x1 Teachers CPD/Wellbeing Session - a combination of engaging movement techniques that can be used with students but with a focus on the wellbeing of the teachers. (Duration: 1 hour and 15 mins, inc. discussion)
  • 1 Senior Leader’s meeting


These 3 sessions will be delivered with full COVID-19 protocols in place and workshops can take place outside if space is not available inside.

Through these workshops, Cheshire Dance hopes to work with schools to better understand what they want and need at this moment in time – particularly in light of pandemic and the effect it has had on both the children and teaching staff. We look to build a long term partnership and raise awareness of what Cheshire Dance can bring to the school setting. 

Due to forming part of our Cultural Recovery Fund programme, ALL workshops must take place in either May or June. Please note that “Connect, Move, Learn” is limited to just 8 schools. As a result, bookings will be taken on a first come, first serve basis.
