Disney Dance P1-P3 + Dance Academy P4-P7
Disney Dance brings dance to life through all the favourite animated movies for a more relatable experience for the younger ages with the progression onto the Dance Academy which focuses on more routines based on the latest chart songs.

Our specialist coaches deliver PE to meet the national curriculum in numerous schools. We believe children should have access to specialist trained coaching to ensure we meet the health and physical needs of our young people.
Our coaches use animation and imagination to capture the children’s attention to make sure they are fully engaged in each session.
Sessions are tailored to suit the needs of the school and can be modified to fit into your school’s preference.
Budgets are tight and schools are under pressure. We provide our team to deliver fundraisers within your school. These popular events provide schools with the financial support to run programmes that were previously unattainable.

The PlayMaker Award is a great introduction into leadership, giving learners knowledge of how to organise small games and activities that can be used during curricular and extra-curricular time, lunchtimes, breaks, as well as in sports clubs outside school hours.
The PlayMaker Award aims to help learners develop leadership skills such as organisation, communication and teamwork, as well as helping to build confidence and self-esteem as they take on the responsibility of assisting in leading their peers and younger children.
