Music and dance have the power to engage and excite young people, to stimulate their social and personal development, educate them in different cultures and inspire discipline and confidence. Kinetika Bloco has delivered schools workshops across the country from Devon to Derby and we can offer your students an exciting, dynamic workshop experience.
We offer: one-off full day music and dance workshops with up to 70 young people; tutors to lead regular after school music activity; or more sustained support to help you set up your own Bloco. The workshops can fit into activities week, kick off a launch of music or carnival activities in the school, or be used as a tool to build self esteem of the students and a sense of community within the year group. Workshops always result in a performance / sharing opportunity which can be shown to the rest of the school. We are flexible to the needs of your school and can tailor a workshop to your requirements. Workshops are led by a team of Professionals and our Trainees, who students find very inspiring examples that they can look up to.
“Year 8 are still buzzing!!!!! Everyone in college is really inspired by the carnival arts theme! Thank you again for making this all possible”
Ann Cockerham, Head Teacher, Rye College
“Eight truly inspirational Kinetika tutors came up from London to be the midwives in the delivery of a new Bloco. 50 young people arrived to take part in the day which started with a DVD of Kinetika’s trip to China. You could easily tell that the participants were sold after the first few frames of the DVD! Everyone seemed totally immersed in what they were doing and were clearly spellbound by the enthusiasm of the tutors. The dancers wore spectacular parade costumes and learnt all the moves they needed for three whole songs in just a few hours. The woodwind and brass players were given parts to learn – sitting down and reading first of all, then made to take the music away stand up and move as they played! Not your usual music lesson, but they all loved it and made incredible progress with the support of the music team. The drummers seemed to be in a world of their own as they made lots of intricate rhythms. The day was rounded-off with all the groups getting back together to perform in front of an appreciative audience. Within seconds the audience was captivated.”
