Honouring Heritage With Black History Month Workshops for Schools

VG Dance Workshops is honoured to present Black History Month Workshops, providing schools with a meaningful opportunity to celebrate the rich heritage, culture, and contributions of Black communities around the world. During Black History Month, our workshops offer students a dynamic platform to explore the powerful stories, traditions, and legacies of Black history through the art of dance. From traditional African dances to modern expressions of Black culture, students will engage in a journey of discovery, celebration, and reflection.

Celebrating Black History Through Dance

Black History Month is a time to honour the achievements and resilience of Black individuals and communities, both past and present. At VG Dance Workshops, we believe that dance is a powerful medium for storytelling, cultural expression, and social justice. Our Black History Month Workshops invite students to learn about the diverse traditions and experiences of Black people through the universal language of dance, fostering empathy, understanding, and unity.


Celebrating Black History Month With African Drumming

Our workshops honour the black history through the dynamic and expressive art of African Drumming that has been passed down through generations, serving as a means of communication, celebration, and cultural expression across the continent. From the thunderous rhythms of the djembe to the melodic tones of the talking drum, each drum carries its own unique voice and story. At VG Dance Workshops, we bring the spirit of Africa to schools, offering students an opportunity to experience the power and beauty of African drumming firsthand.

Benefits of Black History Month Workshops for Students

  • Cultural Awareness: Black History Month Workshops provide students with opportunities to learn about the contributions and achievements of Black individuals and communities throughout history, fostering a deeper understanding of cultural diversity and social justice.

  • Empowerment and Representation: Through dance, students have the chance to celebrate and honour their own cultural heritage or learn about the experiences of others, promoting a sense of pride, empowerment, and belonging.

  • Educational Enrichment: Black History Month Workshops integrate dance with history, social studies, and cultural studies curriculums, offering students a multidisciplinary learning experience that enhances their academic knowledge and critical thinking skills.

  • Community Engagement: Participating in Black History Month Workshops allows students to connect with their peers, teachers, and community members in meaningful ways, fostering a sense of solidarity, empathy, and mutual respect.




We had the pleasure of Vivian visiting our school to deliver a multicultural week of workshops to our infant's school children, nursery to year two. The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, Vivian was extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the events and the styles of dancing. We were so impressed with Vivian, that we then booked another workshop in the same term. Vivian, upon his return, again was outstanding. The children were very lucky to have been taught by Vivian.
