Joel Hockman

Teacher – West Grove Primary School

“What a great day! The children were motivated and engaged throughout. The instructor was energising, fun, but also professional at all times ensuring the children achieved their maximum potential. We feel the workshop was very good value. The workshop not only focussed on dance but was inspiring and motivational for the children and they were able to leave with a positive mind-set. It was especially important that we were finally able to meet an Urban Strider as they have had such a positive impact on the children after seeing them dance at the O2 arena”

: WHAT TO EXPECT

LAYOUT OF THE DAY

For maximum impact in your school, we recommend our “inspiration package”. This consists of 4 x 1 hour workshops followed by a showing at the end of the day for teachers and parents and the rest of the school.

In each workshop your students will learn the foundations of a specific Street Dance style. They will understand what Street Dance is and the importance of its history. They will learn a choreographed piece based on the building blocks they have set out and have an opportunity to unleash their own creativity.

They will enjoy the electric and inclusive Urban Strides atmosphere. So, no matter how they walk into the session they leave felling more empowered, confident, and happy than when they started. Our instructors use their role model status to reinforce your school’s ethos as well as projecting positive messages of resilience, focus, and commitment throughout the workshop.

We can also create something bespoke for your school’s needs. If you’d like something different simply fill out our ‘find out more’ form and a member of our team will be in touch to create a specific solution to your needs.
