Welcome to Dance
Head of Department:
Mrs C Noonan
Curriculum Information:
Dance is offered throughout the key stages, contributing to both the artistic and physical education of our students. In Key Stage 3 Dance is taught as part of the PE curriculum and is offered at GCSE and A-Level in the upper Key Stages

Dance clubs are on offer for all students in Year 7 – 8. Such clubs culminate in performing at showcases in school as well as numerous opportunities to perform within the local community. The senior dance clubs (Key Stage 4/5) focus on choreography and performance and have performed in numerous showcases within North Yorkshire.


The Dance department works closely with local dance organisations and professionals in the industry. Many of our past pupils have gone on to study at dance conservatoires and now, as professionals, regularly return to deliver workshops for our pupils. Many of our dancers are members of The North Yorkshire County Youth Dance Company.


We firmly believe in working with professional artists to give a wide and enriching dance programme as possible. We currently enjoy links with:-


Northern Ballet

Matthew Bourne – New Adventures

Retina Dance Company

Lynton Academy

Laura Murphy

North Yorkshire Dance


We seize every opportunity to perform dance within school and in our wider community. Within school, pupils are given the opportunity to dance in the school production, within liturgies, at Arts Evenings and curriculum performances. Within the community we have performed at our feeder primary schools, The Great Yorkshire Show, local churches & cathedrals and The Yorkshire Dance Platform to name a few.
