What are we aiming to achieve in the Dance Department?

We are aiming to provide pupils with a high quality experience of dance which encourages them towards leading lifelong healthy, active lifestyles.

  • To allow students to experience a wide range of dance styles enabling them to develop their own interests and equip them with the skills and techniques to perform at their full potential.
  • Be creative and explore a range of skills that will help students develop their own technique.
  • To allow pupils to develop their confidence and build upon their ability to work as a team.
  • To offer pupils as many times to perform as possible.
