Movement Works for Early Years

Movement is vitally important to the way we develop, to the way we communicate and understand each other, and to the way we feel, think and learn. Focusing on both the recreational and learning potential that dance movement has to offer MovementWorks provides movement education and experiences of the highest quality for our children, their carers and educators and our communities.

Every child deserves to have the best possible opportunity to learn. Today’s technology driven environment and sedentary lifestyle creates deficits in our childrens development. The MovementWorks Developmental Dance Movement™ Programme is the first of its kind; designed subject to rigorous academic research by a dance scientist specifically to enhance physical and mental development and increase the learning potential for children of all abilities.

The MovementWorks Developmental Dance Movement Programme supports learning and development across all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. Click here to find out more. Read the results of our dance science research project
