Subject Intent: Why Performance Dance?

Dance is more than just a form of entertainment. Dance builds connections between students and our ever-developing world; it is embedded within every culture and allows us to explore and share traditions. Studying dance also promotes opportunities for students to develop many personal and employability skills such as collaboration, discipline and adaptability that will benefit our students as they move on to face the challenges found in higher education or employment. 

What will I study?

  • Group performance workshop
  • Jazz dance
  • Contemporary dance technique

Within the BTEC Dance course there are many opportunities to attend trips, which include attending ‘Move It London’. Your strengths as a dancer are played on, such as dance style and technique. I have thoroughly enjoyed this course!
