The Kickin' Dance Zone School Philosophy
Now in its 22nd year, the Fit'n'Fun Team sees many of its performers come back year after year to Fit'n'Fun KIDZ & TEENZ. The kids and teenagers have the opportunity to join in with all the fun, get creative with music, dance and drama, and get hands-on experience with show production. By joining the Fit'n'Fun 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 on Tuesday night in the Square.
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, coordination, rhythm, creativity, and motivation. 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 participants' strengths and interests. This process enhances their passion for performing arts and gives them the confidence to explore new styles of dance and theatrics. In addition to this, there is a big focus on collaborative learning - the instructors empower the participants 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.
There is an intense process at the start of the event week during which all participants learn between 10 to 12 pieces of choreography. Once the choreography is in place, the team will then tailor the production around the strengths and capabilities of the participants. Teenz and Kidz learn, dance and work together from the first session.
The end result is the ever spectacular Fit'n'Fun Show, which everyone stars in, at the Square on Tuesday night.
We ask everyone to come with an open mind regarding what can be achieved during the event week - after watching the Tuesday night performance parents and audience members can never quite believe that such a high quality production is put together in such a short space of time.
We look forward to seeing you there!
