A photography and movement project for 7-18 year olds, available in the second half of the spring term 2020. Culminating in a large scale photographic exhibition in Worcester's city centre, Reimagine Worcester is a fantastic opportunity for your pupils to consider Worcester’s iconic and ordinary buildings and spaces and through dance reimagine their use.
The Dance in Education Festivals take place again during the spring term and there's still time to register. The festivals are a brilliant way for schools to share their work and to get Worcestershire Dancing!
Please contact Janene Wyatt for more information and how to get involved. Our experienced team of dance teachers look forward to dancing with you.

“Dancefest have been working with us for several years now. Their performances provide inspiration to both the boys and girls. Their well organised and stimulating workshops keep pupils of all ages and abilities engaged and achieving.” Teacher, Earl Mortimer College, Leominster
"I have seen our children grow in confidence - and feel quite comfortable with performing in front of others. They always have fun and are totally engaged - and that's vitally important." Headteacher, Shobdon Primary School
"The children were all engaged throughout the 5 weeks and given the opportunity to take ownership of the dance and use their ideas. Several of the quieter children improved in confidence throughout the programme." KS2 teacher
"It was fantastic to be able to interpret a story into a dance - with our own ideas. It's not just a 'girlie' thing and that's important!" Year 5 pupil
"The children loved it, especially the children who sometimes struggle to engage with others. Several of the quieter children improved in confidence throughout the programme and this was really pleasing to see." Teacher, Tenbury CE Primary Academy
