PRIMARY-SPECIFIC OFFERS Royal Opera House Project Name Create and Dance: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland About the Project This year, the Royal Opera House (ROH) will be piloting Create and Dance: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, in Thurrock. The 10-week programme combines classroombased and digital activities to give KS1-2 students an introduction to dance. With strong curriculum links, the programme aims to give children a better understanding of ballet; developing new physical skills and unlocking their imagination and creativity. Teachers do not need any previous dance knowledge in order to take part. Beginning with a one-day CPD that explores creative dance in the classroom, teachers are guided through the process of creating a short original dance with their class. ROH also provide schemes of work that are designed to be used alongside a series of short films, for you to show in the classroom at the beginning of each weekly lesson. The films are stimuli to the creative process, introducing The Royal Ballet, repertoire and a range of dance techniques. ROH will also be piloting a process to relay a performance of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland directly into your classroom or school hall – with the aim to increase the number of students that will see The Royal Ballet perform one of their signature pieces. Students also have the opportunity to share their experience with other schools at the Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Sharing. KS1 and KS2. Suitability Could be adapted for EYFS and SEN. Schools can deliver this project with as many KS1-2 classes as they wish. 75
