Decades Dance Workshops
School Workshops - Dance Days
As schools start to return to the new normal, we are ready to visit (when you are happy to have outside education providers at school) and we updated our operational procedures to include the latest guidance, keeping you and our team safe. A copy of our Covid-19 policy can be requested.
We are providing our workshops via school visits, or via video either pre-recorded or live.
Dance Days have been providing educational, interactive and fun dance workshops for schools since 2013, and we visit schools in London and the South East, Greater Manchester and Yorkshire.
We inspire, educate and boost confidence through dance and provide a unique experience without breaking the budget.
Many of our dance workshop styles link directly to the school curriculum and enrich your pupil's learning while helping with PE in a none traditional way. We adapt the delivery of our workshops, so they are suitable from Nursery age right through to Secondary School.
We are very proud to have received such great feedback from teachers; this is down to our highly skilled teaching team, all of whom have enhanced DBS checks.

Our Decades dance workshops will take your pupils on a history tour through music and dance styles. You can include various decades or focus on any decade of your choice, for example, 1920's - The Charleston or 1960's - The Twist and Mashed Potatoes.
These workshops are becoming popular when a school is celebrating an anniversary or studying a particular decade.
Some schools have dressed up for these workshops, and that adds to the day.
Our workshops give all pupils the chance to develop and shine away from the classroom.
