AN East Lancashire online dance lesson provider has launched a new socially distanced scheme for primary schools as all pupils return to class.

The new curriculum combines commercial music, creative lesson plans and interactive videos.

The project by Burnley and Pendle firm Primary Dance UK uses innovative technology, enabling its professional teachers to deliver lessons and demonstrate moves through an easy-to-use online platform. This term’s content includes street dance, cheerleading, and acro-dance (acrobatic arts, dance and gymnastics).

Founder Sarah Hawthorne said “Primary Dance UK is committed to enabling every pupil to dance in school, and in these difficult and strange times, pupils need the physical and mental release of engaging dance sessions. Our videos are easy to set up at the front of any classroom or hall, and pupils can fully engage in the lesson while maintaining a safe distance from others.”
