Challenge 59

2017 - 2018

Jo Rhodes Dance: Challenge 59 (2007)
Challenge 59 is a dance and film project for KS1 and KS2 teachers and pupils from east London that puts children and young people in charge of actively engaging with physical and emotional health issues within their communities. The project launches with a teacher's Continuing Professional Development (CPD) session on 1 November 2017 at Rich Mix. Schools taking part can thereafter access a Dance & Film Education Resource which equips teachers and their pupils with a 6-week dance scheme packed with fun and easy-to-learn online dances, creative games and tasks around physical and mental wellbeing, as well as a film & storyboard toolkit, aiming to inspire schools to create their very own ‘healthy message’ dance-films.   Participating schools will be challenged to submit a storyboard idea relating to a local health issue. A multi-sector expert panel will crown three schools the winners of a 6-week artist residency with a dance & film team to make their storyboards into broadcast-quality films. Winning films will be screened at Rich Mix in summer 2018 and distributed via national TV broadcast networks.

Schools might decide to use this project further to gain Artsmark Status and Healthy Schools London awards.
