DDMIX for Schools

Covid-19 Update:

We would like to wish you well and try to provide some support to you all during this challenging time.  We have therefore created some free resources for the children at home whilst schools are closed.

  • We will be live streaming every day at 1:30pm on Facebook live, delivering a 10 min shake up, giving children a short active boost before the afternoon ahead.
  • We have shared a lesson plan and genre for primary schools on BESA’s LendED platform: https://www.lended.org.uk/product/ddmix-for-schools-dance-fitness-free-lesson-plan-and-links-to-music-video-resources/ 
  • We are pleased to announce that we have a special offer on our Schemes of Work online training package during this time. If applicable, membership renewal would not be due until September 2021.
  • Those schools who have purchased our DDMIX program have also been provided with a login for parents to access additional resources.
  • We have also created a DDMIX program especially designed for those who prefer to remain seated. You can still get all of the attributes of dance such as memory expansion, the release of feel good endorphins, co ordination and enjoy moving to music whilst sitting down. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mED9CY-uYeY 
  • Please use our social media to keep up to date with additional resources available as we are constantly working to provide as much support as we can at this challenging time.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions at all.

The DDMIX for Schools team once again send our well wishes to you all at this time.

A Social Enterprise – Dance Fitness by Dame Darcey Bussell DBE
DDMIX for Schools is an inspiring dance fitness program that gets kids moving.
Training is provided along with Schemes of Work for KS1, KS2 and KS3 to enable every teacher to deliver
DDMIX dance fitness during 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 program, 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.

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

The DDMIX genres taught across Key Stage 3 enable students to explore further cultural and historical contexts and key characteristics of the dance styles.
