Join Hilary in this Developmental Dance Movement® (DDM) based session,
part of the new MovementWorks On Demand Library.

Each MovementWorks On Demand Developmental Dance Movement® based session contains a variety of dance movement-based games and activities which are demonstrated by the teacher and accompanied with clear instructions both verbally and using Makaton. 

The activities are not focused on learning particular dance styles or steps and are therefore appealing to both girls and boys. The work is process rather than performance led which nurtures a safe, encouraging and supportive learning environment; sessions are physiologically sound and advocate inclusivity.

Appropriate stimulation develops a strong foundation for learning
Children are encouraged to practice fundamental physical skills that appropriately stimulate the senses; visual, aural, tactile, vestibular and proprioceptive. This enables the specific co-ordination and control which will most directly assist the developmental maturity required to support school readiness and allow children to excel in all areas of learning.

Fun and Informative
The DDM programme takes into careful consideration both the recreational and education potential dance has to offer. Sessions closely link with other specific areas for learning, particularly literacy and maths. For more information. please visit our What is Developmental Dance Movement? webpage
