Developing Physical Literacy Through Dance

Bring your P.E. program to life with dances that foster physical literacy and develop fundamental movements skills (FMS)! Learn an engaging and interACTIVE teaching style that uses simple moves from a variety of music styles (Hip Hop, Urban, Ballroom, Bollywood, Jazz/Funk) and sports themes (basketball, volleyball, baseball) to address all four Elements of Physical Literacy (physical, affective, cognitive & behavioral) and use a simple formula to create your own dances that will keep students ACTIVE while they develop FMS.

    Tanya Parker

    Tanya Parker is a former collegiate athlete in softball who recognizes that her strength, passion, purpose and belief in one's self started with confidence in simple movements. She has always known the benefits of sport and being active but when she entered the education world as an Outreach Worker running programs in inner city schools, she noticed the lack of accessibility, knowledge and participation at all ages. With a passion for dance and sport she turned to DANCEPL3Y and became the Region Operator for PL3Y Education BC to be able to teach fitness through dance across British Columbia. Tanya is a large advocate for physical literacy, social-emotional learning, equality and inclusion and found all of these pillars in PL3Y. With the universal language of music and movement, she witnessed students thrive through positive social interactions, develop autonomy in their bodies and simply HAVE FUN!
