Dance at Haybridge High School and Sixth Form
Dance is a physically demanding course. AS focuses on the students‘ experience of dance, creating solo choreography and group performances. A2 transfers these skills to group choreography and furthers your technical and expressive skills, studying an era of history, creating work based on a researched professional practitioner. The written examination requires students to articulate their studio practice, technique, choreographic and performance experience gained from the course, and to also express their knowledge of a range of professional contemporary dance works. The majority of the course is studied practically through technique classes and performance and choreographic workshops. Students are required to rehearse and develop their practical work outside of lesson time. The theory that accompanies the practical requires students to document their experiences and development in detail. Theatre trips are organised and students have opportunities to develop their performance experience through showcasing their work in ‘in house’ performance evenings and platforms within the county.
A GCSE in grade C or above in Dance and English is preferred. It is also recognised that students gain appropriate experience in dance outside the context of the school curriculum and applicants may be required to demonstrate their technique ability.
