Dance leadership is the perfect way to diversify your enrichment & leadership offer and engage less sporty students in physical activity and leadership.
Dance is one of the most popular physical activities for teenagers in the country and is also a fantastic way for them to develop and hone vital leadership skills.
The Level 1 & 2 Qualifications (Level 4 & 5 in Scotland) are easy to deliver and are particularly successful as a tool to improve students’ physical health & wellbeing via an alternative subject to sport.
According to the British Heart Foundation, less than 8% of teenage girls and 14% of teenage boys get the recommended amount of physical activity each week due to various barriers such as a lack of provision, a lack of positive role models and body confidence issues. Introducing Dance Leadership qualifications can address these issues whilst also improving learners’ employability skills.
Many young people develop a passion for dance at a young age, but there is a significant drop off in participation at secondary school – either due to other commitments, finance or provision within schools. The Dance Leadership qualifications give your students the chance to rediscover their passion for dance whilst also gaining life changing skills and experience.
Your Dance Leaders can also become advocates for leadership and help engage their peers and younger students. They will also have the skills necessary to help run Dance clubs throughout your school to help others become more physically active and engaged.
With this cost-effective qualification you can create a troupe of confident, engaged Dance Leaders who can act as positive role models for other students and help with school and community drama productions.
