Andrea, I just wanted to email you to say a huge thank you for organising the two dance coaches for our Sportsability Festival on Tuesday. James and Chris were fantastic, they worked really well together and were able to change plans according to the different groups they were taking. Their enthusiasm did not waiver all day and the pupils really enjoyed the dance activity they offered. I would not hesitate to recommend them to others- they were a credit to your company and i am very keen to book them again for our partnership events in the Autumn term. Thanks agian.

It has been an exceptional experience for our children to be involved in this dance project, especially the reluctant boys. From beginning to end it has been very well organised. The instructions our children received were excellent. The level of energy and commitment from the Dance in Education Services tutor (Mrs Cook) was impressive, she held the attention and interest of the children at all times. The pace of the session matched the children's concentration span perfectly. In fact it exhausted me just to watch! Thank you for the wonderful and worthwhile experience.
It has not only been a learning experience for the children, but for me also. I would love this opportunity to come to our area again and would like more information about the services Dance In Education Services offer for the future. 'Enjoyment' and 'Energy' seem to be the words which keep coming into my head.

Excellent, I have attended Dance courses before, but they have left me cold! Today has left me inspired!
C. Johnson, Morley High School
This experience has given a wide range of children a very different and challenging experience. Children who traditionally are not particularly sporty have shown a selection of skills including concentration, rhythm and strength. All children who began the course have completed it, a sign of their level of commitment to the project. The group as a whole have encouraged each other and been supportive of those who may have struggled over routines. An excellent experience for year group's girls/boys and a rich opportunity to grab some ideas for teachers who don't find teaching dance particularly easy.
Susan Doe, Teacher, Seton Primary School
This has been a very successful project. The children have really enjoyed it and responded very positively. The coach has been outstanding. Her energy and enthusiasm have been infectious. We have been delighted at the commitment from the children. The boys in particular have really responded. We have loved every minute of it. The festival has given us something to work towards and the opportunity to see the other schools has really made the whole thing complete. One of the best things we have been involved in. Thank you.
Mr Jackson, Head Teacher, Stakesby Community Primary School
A thoroughly enjoyable day. Everyone participated in the workshops, even the most reluctant! Over the 7 weeks the children have matured and taken part in activities that at one time they would not have considered. Miss Ashworth had a profesional attitude throughout which engaged the children and instilled confidence. The whole project has been one of the most successful and different elements of the PLT programme. An annual event with this kind of support would be a great experience for other children. Thanks for all your hard work.

As Education Manager at Phoenix Dance Theatre I had the pleasure of working on more than one occasion with Dance In Education Services. They are a professional and invaluable source of information for any dance teacher, their resources are brilliantly constructed and their approach to Inset helps teachers to feel confident and self assured in their own delivery of the National Curriculum.
Tracy Witney, Head of Education and Community Programmes, Northern School of Contemporary Dance
I just wanted to send a note of thanks to you and Rebecca for the great day of workshops delivered at Feltham Community College. The students from my college and visiting schools/teachers all had positive feedback on the sessions delivered and it was great for me to have another dance person in the college!
Laura Kendal, AST Dance, Feltham Community College
Thank you for your support in making the first Ryedale OSHL Dance Club such a great success. The pupils and staff thoroughly enjoyed the school based sessions and the project encouraged a large number of children to be physically active and improve the confidence and social skills of those involved. The dance festival was also excellent and over 270 parents and relatives attended the event at Norton College. As you are already aware the after school club project has been preceded by in service training provided by Dance In Education Services along with the dance portal and I am sure this has led to the increase in quality and quantity of dance delivery in the partnership.
