“All schools should invest in the KaSoDance scheme of work.
It has transformed our teaching of dance from methodical and mediocre to meaningful and magnificent. Our children are confident and engaged.
Our staff are confident and enthused. Our leaders are confident and envious - nobody wants to miss out on our dance lessons now!
This scheme of work is a complete package to reinvigorate the teaching of dance across KS2”
Emily Hair, Deputy Headteacher - Buckingham Park
"Such a unique approach to delivering dance in our curriculum. It is so easy to follow and to use. It removes the all worries for the non dancing teacher.
A must have in all Primary Schools"
Katy Kelly, School Games Organiser - The Mandeville School
Lesley Arnott, Staff Governor & Sports Manager - Cuddington & Dinton Primary School
"I was so impressed with the content and the means of delivery and can see how it will improve dance outcomes in the long term at our school. The team at KaSoDance are vibrant, passionate and great to work with.
Our TA's will now be able to teach dance with our teachers too."
