HIT THE GROUND RUNNING DANCE THEATRE COMPANY DELIVERS OUTREACH WORKSHOPS TO BOTH MAINSTREAM SCHOOLS AND SEND SCHOOLS, COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES.
Our workshops are primarily designed to reflect the company's current focus of educating people about the stigmas attached to mental health and rebuilding confidence and resilience. The workshops can also be adapted to suit the curriculum requirements of each establishment.
The purpose of the workshop is to encourage collaboration and open up creative engagement.
In addition the workshops offer a new creative approach, innovative lesson planning and sharing ideas with industry professionals.
Learners are introduced to the subject matter, by a company member who will then use the groups contributions and ideas as a catalyst for discussion. The creative team will empower the learners to devise and share their work with confidence in a safe and positive learning environment that encourages differentiation. A company member will challenge the learners with exciting physical movement and create dynamic choreography. There may also be performance opportunities for the students to celebrate their work alongside Hit The Ground Running Dance Theatre Company at venues across the region.
The workshop packages can be tailored exactly to your needs. We would discuss your areas of focus and develop a program around these requirements. The workshops are designed to inspire young students in a creative safe environment and develop movement and co-ordination skills. The concept of working in partnership and as a team, encourages their creative flare and assists in the development of their own individuality.
