Key Stage 3:

Dance has a thriving department at Key Stage 3, with a wide variety of opportunities for our students to develop their skills, confidence and self belief. Our ethos states that dance should challenge students of all abilities to use their expression, physicality and creativity to achieve incredible things. Students will study a range of topics from 'Dance for Film' to 'Parkour'.

Within the Creative Arts faculty we run a Creative Arts Interform Competition in the Summer Term. The students have the opportunity to compete against the other forms and thrive on creating and exploring their own ideas.

The Dance Department run a Street Dance extra curricular club where students can come and learn routines. In previous years we have entered into nationwide competitions with our Dance Crew 'The Project'.

 

Key Stage 4:

At Wexham School we study the AQA GCSE Course. This begins in Year 9 where the students are given the opportunity to develop their technique skills in preparation to start the GCSE course. GCSE Dance enable candidates to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of dance as choreographer, performer and critic through, applying and adapting a wide range of skills and techniques effectively in performing and choreographing dance, including the ability to improve creating dances for a range of purposes and in response to different stimuli, developing the ability to analyse, evaluate and appreciate dance.
