About project

DANCE TFOR SCHOOLS LIVE - Barbora Látalová 

Dance for Schools
As part of the Dance for Schools project, we bring creative movement lessons led by dance artists accompanied by live music to primary schools. These lessons can enrich the education of your child within the complementary Dance and Physical Education program. For children, it's a unique opportunity to personally meet and work with professional artists.

The aim of the project is to extend the possibilities of active movement of children in school, to support their motor skills and creative self-expression. Children's social skills, interpersonal and group cooperation are also developed in the form of movement games. The creative movement instruction is based on the natural movement of children, does not require any special familiarity and is therefore available to all pupils. Teaching is done in the form of three-month blocks. Optimal for the first grades of primary school.

We are preparing detailed information about the project.

Offer for schools

Get your pupils moving and dancing!

In March 2018 we kick off another three-month block of the Dance for Schools project. The project brings creative movement classes to primary schools led by dancers and accompanied by live music. It's a unique opportunity for children to personally meet and work with professional artists.

The aim of the project is to extend the possibilities of active movement of children in school, to support their motor skills and creative self-expression. Children's social skills, mutual and group cooperation also develop in the form of movement games. Instruction is based on the natural movement of children, does not require any special skills, and is therefore available to all pupils.

The course is optimal for grade 1 and subsequent follow-up in grade 2. Get your class involved! The first schools to register can receive support within the subsidized project.

Workshops and seminars

Seminar Dance to Schools - 19-20th January 2017, PONEC–dance venue

The seminar will focus mainly on the role of music in the context of physical education in schools and the theme of emotional self-defense for teachers.
In our lessons is music an integral part of the movement, so we will be working on a cooperation of a teacher and a musician. The seminar will include model example of a teaching lesson, its analysis and discussion. Inspiring will definitely be a musical - movement workshop with lecturer Lenka Pospíšilová from the Česká Orffova Společnost.
At the same time, we will focus on how to take care of ourselves during the work with the children's group through the form of a practical example and analysis of the theoretical aspects of psychology and legislation, etc. The thematic block will be led by Martina Viewegová, a psychologist, dance instructor and a graduate of biosynthetic dance motion therapy.

Come and draw the inspiration and energy!!
