Workshops for schools

We have a long history of bringing Carnival to the classroom – in fact, that’s pretty much how Global Grooves began.

Drumming

We offer a range of workshop experiences across a variety of percussive instruments that will have your students bobbing to beats from South Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and Brazil. The rich traditions of each culture offer something exciting and memorable, introducing your students to a wonderful menu of irresistible grooves.

Dance

Our dancers are highly trained specialists in world dance styles. We offer exciting, structured dance workshops in schools that will see even the most reserved students jumping to their feet, from workshops designed to get boys dancing, to high energy workshops that link directly with our carnival offer.

Visual arts

Go beyond the traditional cut-and-stick class: our visual arts workshops complement our wider Carnival work and can include costume and mask-making. You might want to try Junk Jam, our award-winning project using recycled materials to create a drumming, dance and arts spectacular that doesn’t ‘cost the earth.’

How many students can we cater for in our workshops?

What do you need to provide?
