Pupils from across Charlotte Sharman Primary School are working with Dance Artist Sarah Poekert to explore how the body feels in the act of doing. Using the children's classroom learning, the collection of Aby Warburg and the ideas behind Siobhan Davies Dance New Work pupils are exploring movement across a series of sessions leading to informal sharings with their peers.
We take the choreographic processes employed by Siobhan Davies and our associate artists and craft them into accessible engaging approaches for working with children and supporting their learning across the curriculum.
Starting with a simple idea or stimulus we support participants - school children or teachers - to create movement by observing, listening, touching and experiencing. There are no taught steps. Through choreographic tools participants learn adaptable approaches to develop and structure movement and connect their learning to school subjects and beyond.
Extend It is our programme of Teacher Professional Development workshops.
Experience It is our programme of projects delivered directly to and with students in schools.
A programme of creative workshops and projects delivered directly to and with students in schools giving them a kinaesthetic experience of learning across the curriculum.
Dance artists develop and deliver projects that bring movement and dance into the classroom connected to our artistic programme.
