Dance is a subject that encourages students to work with others; developing communication skills and the ability to work in a group. It can also play a major role in the development of the whole child. 

It helps to develop confidence, memory, creativity and initiative. These are skills that are useful in all kinds of jobs; in fact they are life skills! Added to all of this, it teaches you about looking after yourself and keeping fit.

The dance department aims to provide students with challenging and creative activities that develop the above skills within a lively, enthusiastic environment. Students are encouraged to reach their full potential and beyond!

We are committed to providing all students with a range of opportunities that will develop their creativity and build their interest in the performing arts. We strive to offer our students challenging and up to date lessons as well as plenty of performance opportunities in front of live audiences.

We also encourage our students to participate in dance during their lunch times and after school and we offer numerous clubs throughout the academic year in which they can do that.
