Salsa for Schools
All school staff know that getting kids to exercise is high on the government's agenda, but how do you engage children and teenagers who associate PE (Physical Education) with sweaty gyms, unflattering games kit and humiliating laps of the school field?
Put Salsa On Your Syllabus
As well as increasing fitness, dancing has been shown to improve concentration, co-ordination and communication between the sexes. More importantly, in terms of getting kids involved, it's incredibly fun. Salsa has now also been incorporated into GCSE dance.
Amanda Hawley of Todo Latino Dance Co. has been working with local schools and colleges right across the Midlands, using dance to support music, drama and social skills development, as well as the sport and fitness elements of the curriculum. Often, children don't even notice they're exercising because they're concentrating on learning the steps, having a laugh with their class mates and enjoying the music.
Putting the Fun into Fundraising
And, whether you've adopted the American end of school prom, or your PTA uses the end of term disco for fundraising, Todo Latino can provide a specialist DJ so that alongside the usual pop and R&B, pupils can tryout their new-found skills to some Latin beats.
We can even put on a show or incorporate a lesson into your school disco or fundraiser to keep the dance floor full, energy levels up and get everyone, pupils, teachers and parents, involved. Getting Pupils Fit, Keeping Pupils Safe.
Todo Latino would be delighted to introduce Salsa to your school to engage your pupils in any area of the curriculum with workshops, lessons or one off events and you'll find accounts of some ofthe schools we've worked with in the past on our testimonials page.
Todo Latino Dance Teachers are all CRB Police checked and sensitive to the issues when working with school children and young adults. We will be happy to provide further information and references, if required.
