Learning & Participation - SAA-uk in Schools

We at SAA-uk regularly take our work out into schools and communities and are keen to explore new ideas and partnerships. We can create one off workshops or longer term projects that meet your specific needs, whether they have an educational emphasis or focus on fun and bringing people together.

We can offer dance-inspired activities for all age groups that fulfill the Government's School PE and Sport Strategy, with emphasis on supporting, engaging and inspiring all children to participate in physical activity that is both challenging and enormous fun.

This work forms part of our on-going commitment to engaging new participants and promoting the rich South Asian arts that are part of our UK heritage. We offer music, dance, drama, storytelling and visual arts workshops delivered by artists who are experts in their field and experienced at working with schools and community groups.

SAA-uk organises every detail for you so you can sit back and watch it happen. We take your ideas and aims to create tailor-made workshops just for you, which can last half a day, a full day, a week or even months. We can also run sessions for after-school clubs.

We regularly deliver projects/workshops that explore or enhance the following:

  • Cultural Festivals
  • Faith
  • Diversity
  • Community Cohesion
  • Physical Activity
  • Developing confidence
  • Delivering elements of the National Curriculum

Prices:  Workshops start at £60.  A full day is approximately £300 depending on location and materials required.

To discuss your ideas and requirements please give Maria Spadafora a call on 0113 244 5523 or email education@saa-uk.org
