WriteDance was developed in the Netherlands and the unique aspect of the programme is the use of music and dance. This combination of rhythmic and then melodic pieces of music are chosen so the children can follow and learn specific movements to develop their physical skills including, balance, coordination, flexibility and stamina. The music is always bombastic and energizing and the children are encouraged to follow a dance routine and then replay the music and translate those movements onto paper. The children hold a crayon in each hand to draw, encouraging the use of both sides of the brain. We enjoy the Volcano Dance, becoming fireworks and picking apples from the trees during the year.
