Subject Overview

Dance offers pupils the opportunity to develop their performance and choreographic skills by using a range of skills in a wide variety of contexts. Pupils are able to communicate and express their ideas and feelings through visual, audio and kinaesthetic forms. Through exploring and sharing these ideas, pupils develop confidence and independence in learning. This is essential to becoming a successful learner who enjoys learning, makes progress and achieves.

Through exploring and developing ideas and assessing work critically, pupils reflect on and analyse not only the world around them, but also their own work and the work of others. Students’ experience of new technologies helps them to develop the skills to investigate alternative ways of working. Pupils learn to value the learning process as a key part of the creative experience.

The Dance Department also offer multiple extra-curricular opportunities. Please check the Extra Curricular Schedule here.
