Teaching Resources

YDance have created useful and relevant educational resources to support teachers delivering dance as part of the curriculum in Scottish educational settings. Please check this page regularly as we hope to expand our resources through continuous evaluation. All resources can be purchased in our online shop.

Shake It Up resources 

A downloadable resource for use within the Scottish curriculum.

In our Shake It Up packs, we focus on a specific topic from the curriculum with six in-depth lesson plans covering a different theme and focus. The individual lesson plan includes multiple layered and developed activities to help pupils explore learning topics through creative movement. The lesson plans are designed to support the teacher in delivering a themed lesson plan across a full day or break the lesson plan into multiple shorter sessions.

You can purchase Shake It Up resource packs from our  online shop.  


The Components of Dance – 5pk of posters

Our new resource posters are designed to support both teacher and student understanding of the fundamental components of dance composition at National 5 and Higher level for SQA Dance. These posters provide visual representations of required knowledge for the choreography component of dance at both levels and provide an excellent teaching and learning aid.  

You can purchase resource posters in our online shop
