Why Study Dance?

Here are 6 reasons why you or your child should study dance: 


  1. Dance promotes fitness, a healthy lifestyle, team working and creativity
  2. Dance actively engages students in the process of dance in order to develop as effective and independent learners and as critical and reflective thinkers with enquiring minds 
  3. Dance develops students' skills, knowledge and understanding of a range of dance styles through the interrelated processes of performing, creating and appreciating dances 
  4. Dance develops physical, technical and expressive skills through which students are able to communicate choreographic intention and develop their individual qualities as performers
  5. Dance develops students' skills, knowledge and understanding of choreography through which they are able to communicate ideas, thoughts and meaning drawn from a range of dance styles develops a critical appreciation of dance in its physical, artistic, aesthetic and cultural contexts
  6. Dance provides progression from Key Stage 3 and a solid foundation for further studies in dance or performing arts, including A-levels and BTECs,  and/or a career in performing arts
