Dance

Dance is a popular subject at Central Academy. Dance is delivered in our dance studio which has a sprung floor and mirrors. Students take part in many performances each year at The Sands Centre and in the community. 

In Year 9, students develop their basic technical and expressive skills in a series of practical workshops. They will be assessed at milestone points in their learning on their rehearsal discipline and their personal log which documents their progress.

In Years 10 and 11, students complete the Level 2 BTec Performing Arts (Dance). The course is based around learning dance and musical theatre in various styles and preparing pieces of repertoire for performance as well as developing their own performances under controlled conditions

The Level 3 BTec course develops the student’s technical and expressive skills and prepares them for further study at degree level.  Students study well known dance practitioners as well as learning repertoire and performing it. They will also develop their written portfolio as well as developing their own performance pieces under controlled conditions
