“Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion” Martha Graham
At KS3 students will have two dance lessons per fortnight. Dance at EEHS offers students the opportunity to express themselves through performance and choreography in a range of styles from street dance to contemporary.
At KS4 students can choose to study GCSE dance to develop their technical training and choreographic ideas at a higher level. GCSE dance is a rigorous course which engages students in the analysis and appreciation of professional dance works, health and safety aspects, and evaluation of their own work alongside practical based lessons and workshops.
The Performing Arts Department offers students many trips and performance opportunities as well as opportunities to meet and attend workshops with professionals in the industry. Performance opportunities include the annual whole school production, a highlight in the school calendar, as well as public performances at the Shakespeare School’s Festival and Epsom Dance Festival. Opportunities to study the performing arts subjects at KS5 are available to those students aspiring to attend Sixth Form at EEHS.
