Rugby Dance Workshop

January 2020

This is not a typo! We'll tell you how rugby and dance can go together.

You may be thinking how on earth have we created a rugby dance workshop, well, we haven't.

We'll show you a couple of working examples of how you can use our International Dance Workshop and link it to rugby.

As you may know, 2019 was the hosts the Rugby World Cup and the annual Six Nations Championship.  

If your school are hosting an event or has an interest in rugby, this is one way to get the whole school involved without even touching a rugby ball.

With our International Dance Workshop, you can build your ideal Dance Day by exploring dance styles from around the world with each class or group learning their chosen countries dance.

For Example
The Six Nations Rugby (February to March 2020) includes England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.
You could pick the following
England - Morris dance
France - The Can Can
Ireland - River dance
Italy - Tarantella
Scotland - Scottish Jig
Wales - Welsh folk dance

With the Rugby World Cup (September to November 2019), you have a lot more choice, and the countries include Argentina, Australia, Canada, England, Fiji, France, Georgia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Namibia, New Zealand, Russia, Samoa, Scotland, South African, Tonga, Uruguay, USA and Wales
You could build a full day International Dance Workshop and focus on the following
Argentina - Tango
Australia - Aboriginal dance
New Zealand - The Haka
Russia - Cossack
South Africa - Gumboot
The USA - Cheerleading/Line dancing
(The Six Nations countries are also in the Rugby World Cup)

This gives you an idea of how flexible our dance workshops can be, and how they can compliment any sporting event.

You can find a full list of the topics and styles that we cover on our dance workshops page, and if you would like more information or to book a dance workshop for your school, pop over to our contact us page.

Thanks for reading, until next time.
