Welcome to the Dance Curriculum page

We plan to develop the content of this page gradually.

In Year 7 and 8, dance is taught within the drama curriculum. In Year 9, pupils have the opportunity to opt for dance as a discrete subject, and many pupils take up this opportunity. This prepares them well for GCSE Dance, following the AQA syllabus. Contemporary dance forms the bulk of classwork (as this forms the basis of the GCSE curriculum), but other styles are used to stimulate all pupils' confidence, technique and performance skills.
