A challenge in secondary schools is to engage those not inspired by traditional PE offerings, which the PE and Sport Strategy for Young People identifies as
- young people with disabilities
- those who are from black and minority ethnic backgrounds
- those who come from poorer families
- and those who are overweight or obese.
The strategy advises the introduction of alternative sports and activities that will get these groups active and act as a bridge to more traditional sports and fitness activities.
Danceclub's dance mat packages meet all the criteria to engage these groups and those who do enjoy more mainstream activities.
The Danceclub dance mat package has been supplied to a number of schools including Eastwood Comprehensive Nottinghamshire, Quinton Kynaston Community Academy London and St Rose's Dominican College Belfast
