Elementary School Experience
About the Program:
The GROOVE Experience is a fantastic positive school community builder and tool for physical, mental, social and emotional health. With our unique approach to facilitating movement, students are practicing self-awareness, mindfulness, confidence and healthy peer interactions, while celebrating unity and individuality to represent a positive community....and being active at the same time!! There is no choreography or complicated steps. This is an inclusive, student-centred approach that ensures success for ALL students.
Using a continuous playlist of world music genres, participants are united on a simple movement then coached to add creative exploration and safe social interactions. Sessions for older students involve speaking/discussion portions on the deeper messages being put into practice (acceptance of self, others and building a positive community). All programming has cross-curricular aspects, is aligned with dance and HPE curriculum expectations, and addresses mental health and wellness needs.
How the day works:
We can have a school of 400-500 students participate in one day. Larger populations may need 1.5- 2 days. Students are split into 4-5 sessions in the day with about 100 per session (of similar grade level) and as long as you space can safely allow.
- Session Length: Kindergarten, Primary and Junior sessions are 45mins. Intermediate sessions are 60mins.
- A complimentary 30min Teacher Workshop and Post Workshop Package also comes with the day, to allow teachers the opportunity to learn about The Groove Approach and continue with resource material.
Other Available Options:
Here are some other options schools ask about that we are happy to provide upon request...
- Community Family GROOVE nights
- 3-4 day GROOVE unit to help towards your Dance Assessment
