Dave has taught Street Dance session at SpArC before  to Primary and Secondary age young people and he has an overwhelmingly positive effect . His session enable participants to be creative, challenged, physical, while having loads of fun!

“”Maidwell Primary School is an Outstanding School and we have worked alongside Dave for many years in order to provide depth and engagement.  The remit is always to develop a cross-curricular theme and we have worked on projects as diverse as Slavery to Exploration to Street Dance/Culture.  The experience is always extremely rewarding and the boys in particular respond to Dave as a ‘cool’ role model. The work culminates in a school performance which is shared with the parents.  The response has always been overwhelmingly enthusiastic with parents left reeling at their children’s confidence, creativity and stamina. Want boys to dance?  Employ Dave. Want girls to dance?  Do the same.”  Rosemarie James, Head teacher, Maidwell Primary School.
