Dance at Priestnall School aims to inspire students and help develop a passion for Dance Performance and appreciation of professional dance works. The GCSE Dance course is open to all students, both boys and girls, who have a keen interest in dance and performance. The course aims to inspire students to delve deeper into the world of Dance; develop a passion for Dance Performance and choreography as well hone the skills required to appreciate professional performances. The course focuses on developing students’ technical and expressive skills in performance as well as the ability to create movement which expresses and communicates a range of different ideas and concepts. From the start of the course, six new and vibrant professional dance works (which form the ‘AQA GCSE Dance Anthology’) are studied in a practical and theoretical manner to broaden students’ knowledge and understanding of the diverse range of dance works being performed in the United Kingdom today.
