We specialise in Street Dance, which invariably is the most popular Dance discipline with young people.We seek to develop the confidence of each learner allowing Dance freestyle activities in the session to enable them to create and find movement that is natural to their bodies and within the context of Dance.
Our Dance Disciplines At Kick London we provide a range of dance disciplines including:
| Break Dance | Locking | Popping | Hip-Hop | Musical Theatre | Cheerleading | Improvisation
Target Audience Our dance programme is available to all. Street Dance has a 50/50 male/female ratio of participation in the UK and is increasing in popularity. We tailor our programme to Infant, Primary, Secondary, PRU and Special School pupils.
What Makes Kick London’s Dance Provision Different? Our Curriculum is values focused with a values application to every lesson. Our wide range of Dance disciplines give the young people a variety to find the Dance style which suits them best. Our commitment to performances and Street Dance Battles. Our Dance coaches are also trained mentors and have a pastoral edge to their delivery.
Curriculum Our Curriculum is varied, has a full Scheme of Work and builds the young people towards a performance-based piece. This can be tailored to fit with the needs of the school but often works well where this is performed to the whole school with parents in attendance to see full development in the young people’s self confidence and self-esteem.
Assessment Our assessment methods seek to assess learner’s improvement at, below and above normal levels of progress. We have our own assessment methods which are completed termly or half termly. We can also use your school’s current assessment methods provided a member of staff clearly explains how you would like the Kick London coach to complete the assessments.
Implementation All our sessions start with a warm up activity to avoid injury to the learners during physical exercise. We then move into coaching a skill around the selected Dance and ensuring that all learners are active and involved. We will then move into application of that skill during a practical competition such as a short performance. Our coach will look to utilise our coaching formula during the session crucially demonstrating best practise to the learner and ensuring appreciative enquiry takes place as the learners develop their skills.
