About the Every Chance to Dance resource:
Every Chance to Dance is an online resource that teaches primary students the Australian Arts Curriculum, including dance, music, drama, visual arts and media.
Each term, provided with 10 30-minute videos across the three bands (Foundation to Year 2; Years 3 and 4; Years 5 and 6). As a video resource you can play it individually to each class, or bring all classes in the band together and teach them at once. This resource is flexible and fits in with your schools resources.
The program is engaging, empowering and fun for students, with easy to learn moves for any teacher to master. You don't have to have a background in arts to provide this to your students, that's what Francis Owusu, or Franco as your students will soon know him, the creator and lead dancer is here for!
Franco has over twenty years of performing arts experience and has sung and danced with Australian greats Marcia Hines, Jon Steven and Guy Sebastian, and is credited with developing Timomatic, celebrity star and judge of Australia's Got Talent, dance moves.
This resource is not only flexible, accessible and meets the curriculum, but it also provides support and information for schools on anti-bullying, empowerment and building a positive culture for your students. Franco is a strong believer and advocate for empowering youth and is a role model for students. His commitment to the youth of Canberra was recognised in 2013 when he was awarded the Australian of the Year ACT Local Hero and named as a National Finalist in the Australia Day Awards.
He was further recognised by the ACT Government by being selected as 1 of the 14 most influential people in Canberra to act as a 'champion' in an exclusive leaders advisor group designed to develop the Time to Talk 2030—Shaping Canberra's Future. Franco is the CEO and founder of Kulture Break, a charity youth services provider with a community arts focus and a vision to "Influence a Culture, Empower a Generation".
