Key Stage 3 Dance

Dance is part of the KS3 Physical Education curriculum and runs alongside gymnastics as aesthetic sport. Students are taught a wide variety of styles based on different dance ideas/meanings. The use of musical accompaniment is always used to enhance co-ordination and musicality. Focus is on developing the students confidence, whilst working co-operatively with fellow students. The technical and expressive skills are explored in performance and students are encourage to choreograph their own work. An appreciation of dance is nurtured and this culminates in the students developing their knowledge and understanding of dance in education.
