Dance Guidelines
PE - Physical Education

The Dance strand helps children to learn through dance and to learn about dance. Through dance, children are encouraged to improve body management skills, understand a range of movement concepts, work harmoniously with others, and develop creativity and imagination.


In exploring, creating and performing dances children come to understand that dance is a medium for the expression of ideas, thoughts and feelings. Participation in dance is appropriate for children of any age and either gender and provides many opportunities to enhance work in other subject areas within thematic work.


Teachers can provide a basic framework through which to develop a love of dance. It is important to begin the dance activities at the appropriate level. Children who have little or no dance experience have to begin at a level suitable to their needs, gradually building up skill and confidence with an experience which every child enjoys. The dance strand consists of folk and creative dance.
