Highly Sprung offer an artist in residency service, which matches your school's needs with experienced and highly motivated artists. Providing physical learning sessions that are embedded in the curriculum and are delivered regularly throughout the school year, every week, term or annually. Providing children with the benefit of excellent cultural experiences within their own school environment.
A creative or cross-curriculum project employs company artists, whose disciplines lie in dance, drama and physical performance, working in a particular subject area or subject areas to look at developing collaborative and/or creative approaches to teaching in these subjects that challenge and extend current teaching practices.
The company’s approach is firmly rooted within the use of game, problem solving activities and physical work as a way of encouraging the development of creative and divergent thinking. Kinaesthetic teaching is not about learning how to move but learning to physically engage with the world around us and the problems and challenges we face providing opportunities for students to become holistic and creative learners.
We have recently been recognised for our expertise in using physical learning approaches to explore maths and science in the curriculum.
“The impact on pupils’ levels of engagement and their self confidence has been significant and as a result, so has their learning.” -Teacher
Physical Theatre & Devising
Providing students with a high energy challenging opportunity to engage in the company’s style of physical theatre.
Working through a range of games, exercises and activities students will learn the techniques and approaches to creating physical theatre using a style of performance that expresses a narrative through movement that speaks and text that moves.
Using our unique approach to theatre making students will work with an experienced practitioner to gain the skills needed to create their own performances, explore texts and topics and understand the key principles behind devising.
The workshops place a great emphasis on collaborative devising. The workshop looks at performance skills and gives clear exercises to stimulate the devising process.
The devising workshop also addresses the key skills required for students to enhance their abilities in movement, directing and critical analysis.
