Dance is offered as part of the curriculum for boys and girls in Forms 1-3, helping develop coordination, spatial awareness, fluidity of movement, musicality, flexibility, posture and strength. During the term the children work on numerous set exercises focusing on building dance technique and expanding their knowledge of dance vocabulary. They also enjoy learning group dance routines and will build on their own choreographic skills.

The children can look forward to in-house performances showcasing their classwork in-front of an audience. We encourage dance performances to help build confidence, performance skills and stage experience. They also have the opportunity to participate in workshops on specific dance styles lead by guest teachers.

Extra-curricular dance offers lessons in ISTD Modern, ISTD Tap, ISTD Ballet, RAD Ballet and Street Dance. The children are able to take examinations in Modern, Tap and Ballet.
