Dance as a powerful vehicle - workshop with Suzie West

The workshop

This two day workshop will unpack the many educational formats that dance can take in the schools curriculum and give case study examples. You have a chance to explore delivery models practically and design your own courses or projects using the various methodologies.

The course will discuss how dance can be used as a powerful vehicle for other curriculum topics and greater school development plans.

Suzie West's research in innovative delivery of dance through partnership projects and pedagogy will provide a starting point to build your own aspirational dance projects that will advocate the importance of dance in schools and give the young dancers an exciting learning experience.
