Shake It Up Package

Shake It Up (SIU) is a YDance initiative to support the national goal of improving attainment in primary schools.

SIU provides opportunity for primary pupils to experience dance as an intervention which supports learning and aims to increase engagement through a kinaesthetic process.

The programme is designed to enable children to engage with a range of curriculum subjects (numeracy, literacy, health & well-being and social-sciences) through dance and to support teachers with the skills and knowledge to develop integrated curricular dance delivery.

To enable schools out-with the research of the main project to access Shake It Up we have created a package offer where we will work directly with your school to tailor the content to your individual needs.

The Aims of Shake it Up
