Welcome to Dancing with a Difference


‘Dancing with A Difference’ is a selection of dance and movement programs specifically designed for children which compliment OFSTED requirements and go hand in hand with EYFS and Key Stages 1 and 2.

The programmes are suitable for mainstream and also special need children, and has been tried and tested for many years.

It has won New Activity for Children and the following year came runner up in the National activity for Children.

And its now available to you!

These programmes have been developed over a period of 15 years of research and development into the blending of Dance and Education and in close consultation with nursery, pre-school and play school teachers, in line with government and EYFS Key Stage 1 and 2 requirements, covering Physical Development, and Creative Development, with contributions towards Personal & Social Development, Knowledge and understanding of the world, Mathematics and Language & Literacy.

Dancing with A Difference is twofold. The programmes have been formulated in such a way that whilst children are enjoying, through play, the Music Movement and Mime aspects of the programmes, they are, without realising it, learning the skills that reinforce and compliment the EYFS requirements of Key Stage 1 & 2.

I believe that all children (mainstream and special needs) should have the chance to develop to their full potential regardless of class or ability.

Having taught many different ages and abilities I know what an incredibly positive impact dance can have on the lives of so many children.

Charlotte Kelly

Through teaching and getting to know children you know that all children are different and have difficulties and learn in a different way.
