Are you looking for an exciting way to engage students in Dance and Theatre?
Are you looking for a fresh approach to PSHE topics on Mental Health and Wellbeing?
If so, book a film screening of Impact Dance’s nationally acclaimed Voices along with a Dance and Spoken Word workshop and a resource pack
Voices fuses Hip-Hop, Contemporary and Spoken Word to powerful affect, exploring issues of Mental Health and Wellbeing. The piece creates a window into the private thoughts and feelings of a group of young dancers as they battle the pressures of school and home while emerging from Covid lockdowns: allowing the audience to reflect on their own Mental Health journey and to recognise that they are not alone.
About the workshops
Led by Impact Dance’s experienced practitioners, students of all levels can learn to express themself through movement and spoken word, in workshops focused on the themes of the piece and linked to the National Curriculum PSHE syllabus topic of Mental Health. GCSE and A Level Dance students can also go deeper in their understanding of performance and choreography, in more advanced workshops exploring the piece’s choreographic language.
About the resource
The resource pack links creative dance tasks to relevant PSHE topics and provides suggested follow-up work and lesson plan ideas on the themes used in Voices. It also includes signposting to Mental Health organisations and support services. As part of the package, schools will receive one month’s digital access to the film, to refer back to in their follow-up lessons.
