The Kickin’ Dance Zone School Philosophy
Now in its 17th year, the FitCamp Team sees many of its performers come back year after year to Fit’n’Fun KIDZ. The kids and teenagers have the opportunity to join in with all the fun, get creative with music, dance, drama and get hands on experience with show production. By joining the Fit’n’Fun K.I.D.Z Crew your child will become part of a cohesive team, producing a fantastic and professional show in just 4 days, to perform to the guests.
Lydia Campbell, Director of Fit’n’Fun K.I.D.Z, believes that all children should have the opportunity to experience dance and drama together no matter what their age, ability, language or nationality. The aim is to develop their confidence, self esteem imagination, co-ordination, rhythm, creativity and motivation, as we make them a part of an international performing team through dance, music, drama and production. The training at Fit’n’Fun Kidz & Teenz is so diverse that it encompasses various dance/drama techniques from contemporary and street dance, to acrobatics, martial arts, stage fighting and mime. It doesn’t matter what your child’s ability is …“we don’t expect all children to be of the same level or have the same background or experience in dance…”.
During the event week the team work on developing the Kidz & Teenz strengths and interests. This process enhances their passion for performing arts and gives them confidence to explore new styles of dance and theatrics. In addition to this there is a big focus on collaborative learning - the team empower the Kidz and Teenz by encouraging them to work with all the children regardless of age, nationality, gender or ability. This nurtures emotional and social development and builds learners' confidence.
The end result is the ever spectacular Fit’n’Fun Show that all the Kidz & Teenz star in at the Square on Tuesday night.
Once again the team will be running a Teenz program along side the Kidz dance program. The Kidz and Teenz rehearsals will take place at the same time in the square but will be split into different age groups accordingly. We invite everyone aged 5 to 10 years old to participate in the Kidz sessions and everyone aged 11 to 17 years old to partcipate in the Teenz sessions. Both the Kidz and Teenz will prepare for and star in the Fit’n’Fun Show on Tuesday night.
