Schools

We believe passionately that South Asian dance can engage and inspire people of all ages and backgrounds. Akademi has 40 years of experience delivering high quality informal and formal learning projects across London and beyond.

We work closely with partner schools and our creative practitioners to develop meaningful interventions – from one-off themed workshops to sustained participatory experiences, such as artist residencies.

Akademi’s flexible approach means there is something for everyone. What we can offer:

  • Sessions to address National Curriculum dance targets – such as balance, agility and control.
  • Dance for cross-curriculum learning outcomes, incorporating core subjects such as maths, science, and English.
  • After-school and term holiday sessions.
  • Design of performances, developed in collaboration with pupils.
  • Performances at a school assembly or one-off events.
  • Programmes around exciting cultural festivals such as Holi Colour Festival, Indian Summer, and Diwali.
  • Performers including: Dhol Drummers, South Asian Dance style dancers, Traditional Storytellers, and more.

All activities have positive benefits for participants, including:

  • High quality arts intervention
  • Furthered understanding of other cultures
  • Increased physical activity 
  • Reduced stress levels
  • Social skills and confidence building
