For the past fourteen years, Fly Right has been giving a fun introduction to dance for school children with their award-winning education programme. Over the years, they have developed workshops which complement Curriculum for Excellence objectives, are specific to age groups and topics, and which are highly enjoyable for pupils and teachers alike.
For the past three or four years, the company has been focussing on its World War II offering – you can find out more about these sessions here. All sessions present a balance between the physical and non-physical, developing fitness and co-ordination by learning dance steps and putting the dances in context by relating them to relevant social historical background material.
In addition to complementing Curriculum for Excellence requirements, the Company’s educational programmes seek to provide a lasting benefit by developing valuable personal and social skills useful throughout a pupil’s life.
