Dance is a core component of the creative arts and regularly features in whole-school performances. Throughout the year, all children will work with our resident dance teacher, Delene, who brings her expertise as a contemporary dance practitioner for the Rambert Dance Company. At the end of their term with Delene, the children stage a sharing event where we invite the school’s wider community to celebrate their success.

In addition to the contemporary dance lessons, children across the school also receive a term of street dance lessons with Sarah. The emphasis in these lessons is building confidence and the children finding their own style. The children work towards learning a complete routine which they can perform with ease at the end of the term.

Dance is an important vehicle for expression. Children will explore necessary physical and movement skills but will also develop an overall language of dance and movement that is not only hugely enriching, it helps children develop confidence, nurtures creativity and imagination and helps to build and strengthen relationships.
