FuZe8 Dance Education

FuZe8 work collaboratively with primary and secondary schools in delivering dance from KS2 to KS5; offering dance projects linked to the curriculum and extra curricular dance classes.

Nicola believes it is essential to lead by example and that includes teaching to a high standard. Her teaching has been consistently outstanding and as a result she has been asked to share this through teacher training sessions on classroom management, stretch and challenge, setting high expectations and embedding assessment in lessons. Nicola has significant experience of teaching Dance from Keystage 2 – 5. Over the years, her students have achieved excellent results; her last GCSE class achieved 100% A*- B, A level Dance was 93% A*- B two years running and the BTEC Dance results were consistently 100% Distinction* and Distinction for 10 years.

Nicola has had experience in delivering high-quality, extra-curricular work, leading young dancers in Global Rock Challenge and achieving Premiership status within three years. Her dancers and team also achieved the award for Best Choreography every year and in 2011 they received Best Choreography for the UK.

Nicola has been fortunate to share her knowledge and experience of dance education with dance degree students at the Arts University Bournemouth and Winchester University, developing a strong portfolio of work for undergraduates on teaching and leading dance in schools and the community.

For the last two years, Nicola has been commissioned by Pavilion Dance South West and Roche Court Educational Trust to write a teacher resource pack for their Exchanges project, uniting schools, colleges and HE students in a dance and visual arts performance showcase. The pack included improvisation and choreographic tasks and starting points for combining the use of sculpture and dance, within a community dance or curriculum setting.
