This isn’t an exhaustive list, but it’s a start. If you would like a different style or have something totally different as inspiration, please let us know. The TRS Teachers are very talented and can design cross-curricular sessions around your theme. For example we have recently done this with Aboriginal Dance and Skiffle (with a WW1 theme).

For teenagers chart music and relevant themes can be used.
