Dances for Physical Literacy

taught by Melanie Levenberg


We gather music and song requests from students and teachers, then our team of choreographers develops playful dances that develop Fundamental Movement Skills, interpersonal skills and positive mindsets!

Use the Dances for Physical Literacy Resource to keep your students ACTIVE by:

  • Inviting student leaders to learn the moves and lead their peers or younger students in the dances.
  • Playing the videos as part of your Daily Physical Activity.
  • Downloading the choreography notes and coaching your students as part of your Physical Education or Dance program.

Note: this is a dynamic online resource that provides access to 10 dances at any given time. The content is updated at least once a month to showcase new songs.
