RESOURCES FOR SCHOOLS

To help inspire children aged 5–11 and keep them engaged in literacy and learning, we’ve introduced the exciting and engaging FIT TO DANCE for SCHOOLS programme. It’s a cross-curricular programme that supports English and Physical Education for Key Stage 1 children.

1

We help children improve their literacy and English skills with a story-builder activity. It helps them develop their own unique stories and choose their own characters, as well as the settings and obstacles that they want in their adventure.

2

In the P.E. lessons we help them create a dance to tell their stories – just like the show team from Disney On Ice.

3

Further down this page you’ll find images from Disney On Ice shows to get you started. You'll also find music pieces to stream during your lessons and videos featuring interviews with skaters and performers from the Disney On Ice shows – all to help inspire your class.

Why should your class get FIT TO DANCE?

The below resources give you the help and advice you need to get the children in your class interested in English Literature and Dance. It’s this joint idea of storytelling through dance that’s at the heart of all Disney On Ice shows, and soon to be in the hearts of your class too.
