African dance workshops


The African dance workshops give the children the opportunity to explore and learn the traditions of African music, movement, and African culture.


They are delivered to schools throughout the whole year linking classroom themes and topics. The African style of dance is a very popular workshop with lots of energetic movement with soulful authentic music.

Children will explore the sounds of African beats and rhythm in dance working on formations and choreography all suited to the year group.

​The African dance workshops are aimed at EYS, KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4.


Structure of Workshop


When structuring your workshop day VG educational dance workshops are happy to work around the school timetable as we understand schools in different areas and cities have different timetables throughout their day.


When structuring your workshop sessions we recommend appropriate timing for the following frameworks;


- 30 minutes KS1 sessions   

- 40 minutes KS2 sessions



Breakdown of the Workshop session 

-  Introduction to the topic-based dance workshop theme exploring the culture and fun facts.
- Dance Warm-up and movement games working with class peers. 
- Learn a fun dance routine aimed at all abilities within the class.
