Dance Activ-8 Kids training course will enable you to deliver dance fitness classes to kids aged 7 – 12 years old.
This one day course is delivered in a similar format to our Dance Activ-8 Core training.
Our aim is to teach and facilitate a fun, engaging and effective fitness experience through relaxed, energising and encouraging classes that make our students feel confident dancing outside of our classes as well as during them. Above all, we’re passionate about training and enabling non-dance professionals to be able to carry the programme into schools, youth groups or any other community group.
At a time when one in four children are now classed as clinically obese, some children and teenagers battle increasingly with body confidence and self-esteem issues, and a huge proportion of the population struggle to achieve a healthy lifestyle..
Through our experiences teaching a range of well-known dance fitness classes, we also found many children were struggling to connect with other dance class styles, or achieve their full benefit. Many popular programmes on the market use music or dance styles that children cannot relate to in their everyday lifestyle or music or dances they would not choose to use in their social time. We believed we could provide an alternative kind of dance class that would bring together all these needs and give a wider range of people a way to enjoy dance, get fit and have fun together.
Making use of the popularity of recent dance acts such as Diversity and Flawless, Dance Activ-8 is based around contemporary commercial dance – a strong, funky style that integrates elements of house, street, contemporary and party steps, performed to the latest, licensed chart music. Dance Activ-8 acts as the perfect blend of non-complex choreography that’s easy to pick up whilst having fun, strengthening muscles, and improving balance, flexibility and co-ordination of the younger population.
Developed for use in schools and communities, Dance Activ-8 is taught and delivered through an innovative, accessible and professionally-backed programme. Endorsed by Skills Active and REPS, working to new National Curriculum targets as well as meeting and exceeding Ofsted requirements for schools.
Our Dance Activ-8 Kids Training will take you from absolute beginner to Instructor status in just one day!
