DDMIX for Schools – DDMIX for Schools KS1 and KS2 Dance Fitness Schemes of Work and Training for Primary
DDMIX for Schools is a dance fitness program for PE created by Dame Darcey Bussell DBE.
DDMIX for Schools are passionate about making dance fitness an integral part of PE in all schools, giving all children the opportunity to get moving whilst most importantly enjoying exercise.
Training is provided either online or via an inset at the school, and has been written with the ‘non dancer’ in mind to enable every teacher to be able to deliver the program.
Schemes of Work for KS1, KS2 or KS3 are also included and contain lesson plans, music, video links and more, ensuring the DDMIX for Schools program is simple and fun for both teacher and pupil.
Requiring no equipment, lessons can be delivered anywhere; in the school hall, in the playground or even just behind a school desk. This enables the children to adhere to social distancing guidelines, but mostly keeps them active and creatively confident.
DDMIX for Schools has the tools to create a life habit of activity promoting happiness and wellbeing in every child.

Pupils also interact with the author and other readers from around the world on the online book forum, to actively participate in the creative story-writing process. Outstanding and original pupil contributions are rewarded with certificates by our editorial team.
