Dance is a great way for young people to be physically active whilst also developing their creativity and self confidence. It can also be a great way for schools to engage pupils who wouldn’t normally enjoy taking part in traditional PE/school sport.
Each year the SSP organises two dance shows for pupils in SSP member schools to take part in. The aim of the shows is to give young people an opportunity to create and practice a dance set around a theme and perform it on a big stage in front of their friends and family.
Since 2011 the shows have been held at the OPEN Youth Venue in Norwich benefitting from their large stage and professional sound and lights.
The title of the shows for 2016/17 is “A Night at the Musicals” and schools are invited to perform dances based around a musical theme.
This year’s shows will be held on;
- Wednesday 8th February 2017
- Wednesday 24th May 2017
Support available to schools
The SSP is able to provide schools taking part in the show with a range of support from our SSP Dance Coordinator, including;
