Our Dancing Maths course is designed to inspire school pupils by injecting fun and energy into learning. The course is for KS1 and KS2 pupils and runs in a block of 6 - 12 weeks. This course covers the dance units in PE and it can also be used to provide weekly PPA cover.
During our classes, children 'stomp' the times-tables, make number digits with their bodies, perform calculations, make a moving bar chart and more...
This innovative and proven educational course keeps children active and creative with the added bonus of practicing maths while having fun! There are no pens, paper, desks or chairs in our classes, just our minds, bodies, music, action and lots of action!
Please take a look at the information below or contact us today to find out how we could work with your school.
We visit schools during term time for a half term block. Our classes usually cover a half day or full day and follow the normal school timetable. We can work with 2 classes in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. Classes usually run for 1 - 1.5 hours and can include up to 30 pupils at a time. We are happy for teaching staff to join in, watch and observe or we often run the classes as PPA cover.
We tailor our classes to suit your needs and ensure that content is appropriate for the age, level and abilities of the pupils. Careful planning and liaison with schools we work with ensures that the content is appropriate and will progress over the time we work with each class.
We ask that pupils wear their normal indoor PE kits and have bare feet or plimsolls.
All our teachers are highly experienced professionals and have DBS checks and public liability.
Schools often book us as an outside provider for PE, PPA cover, Staff CPD, for help with Arts mark and even help with school improvement plans. Please contact us to discuss your needs.

Fun, engaging and inclusive...
We have found our workshops are very successful with students who may struggle, seem uninterested or lack confidence in maths. By tackling mathematical concepts through movement, rhythm, props, voice and most importantly of all light-hearted, fun tasks; pupils often forget they are thinking about maths as well as dancing!
"The under-pinning research was of very high quality"
"We thoroughly enjoyed your dancers' visit and our children went home on that day totally enthused. On the back of I managed a highly successful maths week and would not hesitate to recommend you to other maths co-ordinators and schools. We all thought the performances were very well pitched and the children were spellbound! They have continued to be enthused about maths ever since and will remember what they did for years to come. Thank you.”
Helen Teacher from Crazies Hill CE School.
"The children really enjoyed the day. It was great to find another way into maths that will help them in their learning. We've had lots of great ideas and can now use them in our lessons. The children were mesmerised by the performance. We thought the dancers really interacted well with the children and held their interest throughout. The performance was great for all the year groups, something for all of them all the way through. Thank you, a great day!"
