A Social Enterprise - Dance Fitness by Dame Darcey Bussell DBE

DDMIX for Schools is an inspiring dance fitness program that gets kids moving.

Training is provided along with Schemes of Work for KS1, KS2 and KS3 to enable every teacher to deliver

DDMIX dance fitness during PE lessons.

 

 




Here is a message from Darcey Bussell

Movement to music makes children come alive and changes the way they feel. With the DDMIX program, kids get an exciting and diverse learning experience that is physical, aerobic and high time on task.

These benefits should be enjoyed by every child. Dance fitness can stimulate the child’s interest in sport, in the arts and give them the confidence to explore their own creativity in other fields.

KS1


The Key Stage 1 sessions are aimed at developing the key skills and elements of dance, introducing many themes that can be cross curricular.

KS2


In Key Stage 2, DDMIX dances are incorporated and used to develop their use of dynamics, character, narrative, group formation and many other devices. 

KS3


The DDMIX genres taught across Key Stage 3 enable students to explore further cultural and historical contexts and key characteristics of the dance styles.

 

Throughout all age groups, students learn set movements to develop their technical skills and have the opportunity to develop their own choreography.

We completed our first half term and it was brilliant. The children really enjoyed it and I enjoyed teaching it. We will be continuing in the Spring Term. I cannot tell you how much progress there has been since last year.
