EEHS have a new Dance department allowing students to experience a range of Dance styles from Street Dance to Contemporary. Dance is a standalone GCSE within the options and is where students will learn technical skills of movement, anatomy and physiology and composing Dance. These skills allow students to create their own work and work as a dancer or choreographer in school and later in higher education.
GCSE Dance and A Level Performing Arts are offered as subjects in the KS4 and 5 options along with full time Dance in the curriculum in years 7 and 8.
As a member of the Performing Arts department, students will have to opportunity to work with professionals from the world of Dance, sharing skills and choreographic ideas. Learning about choreographers in the industry from the 1950s to present day enables students to gain a range of ideas to bring back to their own work.
Students will have numerous occasions to perform at school and in theatres as part of Dance showcases, along with whole school productions.
The department is an evolving and exciting department to be a part of.
