Introduction to Creative Dance (P4-7) 


Downloadable resource pack for use within the Scottish Curriculum.

In our Shake It Up packs, we focus on a specific topic from the curriculum with six in-depth lesson plans covering a different theme and focus. The individual lesson plan includes multiple layered and developed activities to help pupils explore learning topics through creative movement. The lesson plans are designed to support the teacher in delivering a themed lesson plan across a full day or break the lesson plan into multiple shorter sessions.



The ‘Introduction to Creative Dance’ resource pack is designed to create fun and engaging dance lessons for your pupils to develop their movement vocabulary. 

We have created four lessons focusing on the Expressive Arts benchmarks and we have used the components of Laban’s Movement Analysis as a methodology to create dance sessions that enable learning that is relevant, challenging and, enjoyable. The resource pack provides colourful posters as a learning and teaching aid. 

‘Introduction to Creative Dance’ resource packs cover:
