ConfiDance is our 6-12-week structured dance programme offered to secondary schools and alternative education school settings such as pupil referral units, hospital schools, special education needs and disability schools.

Working with between 6-15 dancers aged 13 - 19 per session where possible within a school/familiar setting, each session would last between 1.5-2 hours per week.

The first half of the session is packed with fast moving and energetic dance and movement, instantly engaging students, raising heart rates and getting adrenalin flowing to increase the levels of serotonin for a happier outlook. We aim to enhance peer support networks through working with and meeting people outside usual friendship groups.

The second half sees students working with our dedicated team to identify goals and aspirations, building positive and achievable pathways, utilizing the Bronze Arts Award as a foundation, building self-worth, confidence, career aspirations while working towards a recognized certificate of achievement.
In summer 2019 we worked with St John Payne students. Class content was delivered by Vicki Stravrinos from BamBam Boogies in authentic ‘Street Dance’ styles whilst Gemma, our Artistic Director set tasks for their Arts Awards.
Delivered over a 7-week period, included a performative sharing, students were able to teach other young people, passing on their new knowledge and skills at our Summer Festival 2019. 

We recognise each student’s needs are individual and different, therefore will prioritise speaking with you to understand the dancers as fully as possible, to ensure the content is bespoke to them.
