What will your child get out of our Islamic Sleeping Beauty Summer Ballet Workshop?

During the Summer Ballet Workshop and through story-telling, creative writing, choreography, girls will gain:

An understanding of Good Morals and Good Character

Girls will explore and learn more about good morals depicted in the story by engaging with the inspiring characters. Traits like humility, being charitable, gentleness, helpfulness, caring, having a good heart, amongst many other honourable traits that are important to have as a Muslim.

Emotional Development

Girls will be encouraged to explore their sense of self, who they are and freedom of expression in a safe space through the storytelling, creative writing and choreography.

Through poetry and creative writing girls will gain an understanding of meaning and feeling through the spoken word which will aid their ability to verbally express themselves. Furthermore, through exploring meaning in movement, girls will develop non-verbal communication skill which will teach them to put emotions into action through their body language and facial expression.

Creative and Cognitive development

Through the workshop girls will explore their creativity by building confidence in their ability to invent, explore and discover.

In the creative tasks, the girls will explore the meaning of words and their expression through their movement. Furthermore, the girls will explore shape, dynamics and quality of movement which will help them to develop the ability to think more independently, to think openly and to problem solve.

Social Development

The workshop encourages the development of social skills through facilitating the opportunity to build friendship and to develop skills required to work together

Building teamwork skills, leadership skills, listening and communication skills.

Islamic Identity

This is core to the work we do. We seek to promote a positive Muslim identity through the content we use and its delivery. We will aid girls to develop confidence in who they are.
