A Social Enterprise – DDMIX for Schools Dance for PE is a dance fitness programme by Dame Darcey Bussell DBE

DDMIX for Schools Dance for PE is an inspiring dance fitness programme that gets kids moving.

Training is provided along with Schemes of Work for KS1 and KS2 to enable every teacher to deliver straightforward, fun and active PE lessons.

Here is a message from Darcey Bussell

Movement to music makes children come alive and changes the way they feel. With the DDMIX programme, kids get an exciting and diverse learning experience that is physical, aerobic and high time on task.

These benefits should be enjoyed by every child. Dance fitness can stimulate the child’s interest in sport, in the arts and give them the confidence to explore their own creativity in other fields.

Be Active – High time on task, simple to deliver with fun active learning activities

Take Notice – Children take time to watch one another and appreciate the different ways our bodies can move

KS1

The Key Stage 1 sessions are aimed at developing the key skills and elements of dance, introducing many themes that can be cross curricular.

KS2

In Key Stage 2, DDMIX dances are incorporated and used to develop their use of dynamics, character, narrative, group formation and many other devices.

Throughout all age groups, students learn set movements to develop their technical skills and have the opportunity to develop their own choreography.
