KS3 Dance (Year 7 and 8)
Within Year 7 and 8 students participate in compulsory dance lessons, once a fortnight. Based in our specialist dance studio, the lessons are designed to develop students confidence, teamwork, understanding of dance principals and health-related fitness. We work within a range of groupings, and with a variety of stimuli, such as poetry, pictures, emotions and professional dance works, to create choreographies and learn set phrases of movement. Students learn about how to both perform and appreciate dance, as well as how to generate creative ideas. Dance is a wonderful opportunity for students to work together, share their creative ideas and work collaboratively.
The Dance department participate in many external performances across the local area; annually performing at both the Lyceum and Regent Theatre. With close links to HE institutes, we also work collaboratively with South Cheshire College and Manchester Metropolitan University to provide workshops and further performance opportunities. A wide variety of clubs are on offer for students to attend at lunch time and after school.
