The Early Years Foundation Stages Dance Teaching Framework sits within a suite of Frameworks which together map children and young people’s progression in dance from Early Years Foundation Stage through to Key Stage 5. Designed for use by both dance specialists and non-specialists, the Frameworks can be used to help teachers structure their dance sessions to enable progression and learning across the three main aspects of dance education: performance, composition and appreciation.
