Want to take India off the map and bring it to life? Our expert dance facilitators know how to get young learners of all backgrounds excited about music, Bollywood dance and Indian culture!
Learn the ‘Dhol’ (that's a drum from North India played with special sticks!), try out Indian bells and shakers and brush up on your vocal percussion!
Create a positive, vibrant and energetic atmosphere in your classroom with Indian Bhangra drumming! From the Dhol drum commonly associated with Punjabi culture and Bhangra folk dancing, to the Indian vocabulary poetry that accompanies, this session will be full of fun and fascinating things to explore.
Our sessions require full participation and interaction, yet also allow pupils to investigate taking solo parts. Drumming is a fantastic way to develop teamwork and confidence, and helps with concentration and memory retention.
Even with little or no musical background, all pupils very quickly start to feel empowered with a new skill and a new focus on team work. We encourage schools to invite fellow peers and parents to the live performances!
Half Day – 2 x 2 hour workshops. Working with two groups either in the morning or the afternoon. There will be a final performance by both groups at the end of the sessions for an audience of your choice (available to select areas of the UK).
Full Day – 4 x 1 hour workshops in one day. We can work with a class size of 30 in each 1 hour workshop. There can be live performances to an audience before lunch and at the end of the school day.
"Thank you so much for your talent and organisation! It has really brought our topic to life and we thoroughly enjoyed both the dance and drumming workshops. I was absolutely delighted with the final product and the children really pulled it out of the bag during the performance. Parental engagement was fantastic and they commented on how well the children had participated. I was particularly pleased that the boys took part in the dance workshop as I was apprehensive about their engagement and your Leader made it accessible for all."
