  •  perform a range of original and set dances
  • study a specific dance performance and show their understanding in a written external examination.

Recommended Prior Learning

A love of dance and dancing is the main requirement for this course. A positive attitude to learning and the desire to explore a range of dance styles. 

Prior experience in Junior Dance is useful but not essential. Experience performing in either cultural dance or a school production is also useful but not essential. Studio training in any dance style would be an advantage but is not required for entry to this course. 

An ability to work collaboratively in pairs or small groups will be a requirement for success in Year 11 Dance. Due to the focus on group work, a good attendance record is advised as a prerequisite for entry. If you are unsure about your suitability to enroll in this option, please discuss with the HOD of Drama and Dance, Ms. Allpress.
