Dancing Mindfulness Clubs:

 

Mindfulness practices bring us into the present moment. We are so often lost in thoughts of our past or worries about our future that our lives fly by largely unnoticed and unappreciated. Mindfulness is all about awareness, attention and appreciation of this moment. 

  

Our Dancing Mindfulness Clubs use movement, music and mindfulness-in- motion to reach a place of greater awareness. The aim is to teach children about mindfulness and movement exercises that help reduce stress and anxiety and give them tools to understand and manage their emotions. 

 

In our Dancing Mindfulness clubs, children learn and practice Mindfulness skills that can be used in everyday life, while also engaging in creative dance as a means of introducing, experiencing, and deepening their understanding of Mindfulness. 

 

Truefitt Collective are partnered with The Institute for Creative Mindfulness and exclusively deliver Dancing Mindfulness workshops to Primary Schools in the UK. If you are a Primary School and are interested in establishing a Dancing Mindfulness Club with us, please contact us for further information and pricing.

Curriculum Classes:

“Creative Day of Dance” 

We believe in the importance of a creative curriculum and using dance to bring classroom topics to life.

We provide bespoke workshops to complement classroom learning. Our Dance Artists will liaise directly with class teachers to devise creative dance workshops that will benefit all students.

 

Each dance workshop consists of a warm up, dance technique exercises, creative time, reflection time and cool down excesses. We follow the National Dance Teachers Association guidelines for Primary Dance which link to the P.E National Curriculum. 

Example of a Creative Day of Dance:

09:00 - 09:45: Year 1

09:45- 10:30: Year 2

10:45- 11:30: Year 3

11:30- 12:15: Year 4

Objectives:

Dance not only has physical benefits but will also help children mature emotionally, socially and cognitively. For kinaesthetic learners, there is no better way of enhancing classroom themes and ideas than through exploring them through dance and movement. 


1. To work closely with schools and class teachers to embed creativity and movement into the classroom environment.


2. To promote a healthy lifestyle through embedding creative exercises within the classroom environment, encouraging children to participate in physical activity.


3. To offer young people the opportunity to learn new skills, grow in confidence and develop performance skills.
