At FABRIC, experience tells us that working with schools is a vital way to engage the next generation in dance and to develop the audiences, performers and leaders of the future.

We also know that many schools value professional support in delivering dance and developing their teachers.  That’s why we have created a new dedicated school package.


  • An experienced dance practitioner in your school, one day a week during term time
  • Sessions to nurture and encourage positive mental well-being, social interaction and empathy
  • Potential to use dance to support cross-curricular and topic-based learning
  • After school clubs, holiday projects and summer school activities
  • Weekly dance sessions tailored to your needs, based on the national dance curriculum
  • Links to FABRIC’s performance programme, with inspiring touring companies and choreographers
  • Opportunities to connect with Birmingham International Dance Festival, as audiences and participants
  • Support with ArtsMark and Arts Award
  • Continual Professional Development sessions for your dance and PE teachers
  • Taster opportunities for FABRIC’s Centre for Advanced Training
  • Opportunities for secondary schools to create dance initiatives with their feeder primary schools
  • Access to a wealth of dance expertise and industry knowledge, through the FABRIC team


Schools can pay £6,750 +VAT per annum to have a professional dance practitioner based in their school one day a week for every week of the school year, or £3950 +VAT for half a day a week.

We are also open to discussing alternative models with you, for example, with two or three schools sharing a package across the year.

Please note, primary schools would be able to use their Sports Premium to support this cost.

Hear from those who have experienced our schools’ programme

We continue to work with DanceXchange due to the high-quality teaching of Dance that takes place. They provide professional, high-quality teaching that engages and interests the pupils. The children enjoy the sessions and have built a good relationship with the teacher. They are also pushed to improve and develop their skills which can then be applied at home.

St Mark’s Catholic Primary School works closely with DanceXchange to upskill staff so they gain confidence and knowledge with their delivery of this important curriculum subject, and therefore the progress that the children make. We look forward to a long and successful partnership together.
