Dance in Secondary

The demand for certified dance is increasing within educational settings. In order to support schools and teachers, we have devised CLPL sessions on various areas of dance education which will aim to support teachers delivering BGE-SQA Dance courses to enhance learners needs and specific aspects of learning, curriculum for excellence, and core skills.

Dance in Primary 

Dance education within primary schools is a way for young people to express themselves physically, emotionally and creatively, enhancing their enjoyment of participation and their ability to co-operate with others whilst building confidence. Shake It Up has introduced a way for schools to experience dance as an intervention which supports learning and aims to increase engagement through a kinaesthetic process. Support your classroom learning by reinforcing classroom topics through creative dance to enhance the learning and teaching experience for all.
