Dance

Mrs Dawson - Subject Leader

Dance is an exciting, creative and stimulating subject taught in a purpose built dance studio.

Within lessons we work to develop a range of transferable skills which include team work, creative thinking, analysis, co-ordination, spatial awareness and confidence. Some students have prior experience of dance therefore; we introduce different dance genres, cultures and specific choreographic styles to challenge students to move out of their comfort zones.

Dance is becoming increasingly popular in the media with specific dance shows on television. At Dowdales we regularly adapt the units of work to keep up to date with the current trends and dance crazes. Many of our past students have gained places at prestigious dance schools and Performing Arts colleges after leaving school.
