AND Schools INSET: Drama, dance and Movement
14 March 10.30 to 16.30 at Museum of London
Work with theatre-maker Katharine Marwick and dancer Andrea Puerta to explore the role of drama, dance and movement in the classroom. You don’t need to be a dance or drama expert (or an actor or a dancer) to take part. The day will also include a chance to network with drama, theatre, dance, and movement organisations. Suitable for primary, secondary and special schools.
The session will be facilitated by Nimble Fish, creative producers and facilitators with extensive experience of helping to create the conditions for creativity in the classroom, and working with teachers to reconnect with innovation in their practice.
