Déda offers bespoke workshops and projects for every school setting from Early Years Foundation Stage to FE and HE level.  Whether it is an individual workshop to compliment a current theme, topic, examination syllabus or a year of curriculum-based classes developed with your staff, Déda has a practitioner who can create and deliver this with you.  This includes breakfast, lunch and after school clubs, choreographing dance pieces for festivals and platforms, arts and sports weeks, enrichment days and CPD for teachers working alongside our dance artists.  We are especially happy to work with the government’s PE and School Sport agenda around increased physical activity in children aged 5 – 11 years.

Whether you are looking to set up a weekly class in a community hall, want a performance for an event or you want to get your delegates up and moving at the beginning of a conference, Déda can help.  Déda can run workshops for anyone from the age of 6 months to 100 years (and over!) with dance activities that are appropriate for the age and ability of the participants. 

Anyone can enjoy dancing regardless of their age or ability, experience, shape, size or background. The benefits of dance are numerous and include mental as well as physical benefits. Déda’s health and wellbeing programme has a person-centred approach, working with the needs of the individuals and/or group. We can refer you to one of our existing classes or create a specific workshop or programme to meet your own outcomes.
