Dance Subjects


Many pupils within the school study more than one branch of dance. Each genre of dance compliments one another. The classical ballet gives the strength, deportment and carriage of body which is reflected in every kind of dance. The modern dance encourages a suppleness of body with increased strength which can then be used in developing street dance and contemporary modern work. Every child loves to tap and hear the sound of their feet and national gives the freedom and pleasure of dance and builds team work of children.
