PERFORMANCE ARTS (DANCE)

Exploring Dance and the Performing Arts allows students to express their creativity whilst utlising key skills such as teamwork, critical analysis and evaluative skills. Dance aims to develop knowledge of key figures and information regarding the history of dance whilst maintaining a fun, vibrant and upbeat feel linking to modern themes and culture. Students need to be focused, committed and reflective. Studies provide students scenario based learning linking to the Performing Arts sector and also provides students with the tools and foundations to move on to future learning in this field with a view to a career in the Performing Arts.

Dance is not just movement, not simply abstract. It's something beautiful. Sometimes there's this feeling in the movement that makes me want to cry.
