Our schools programme is designed to support, nurture and inspire high quality dance in schools.

Primary Schools

The Learning & Participation team in conjunction with students from our Foundation Course offer annual workshop and performance packages to Leeds based primary schools. The workshops focus on cross curricular links in Dance and PSCHE, the schools are then invited to attend an interactive dance performance at Riley Theatre. These workshops run during the spring term.
