Why study Dance?
Dance provides students with the opportunity to develop both creatively and academically. Dance develops students’ confidence, social and leadership skills, muscle control, time management skills and focuses on a strong work-ethic that can transfer to academic achievement and career success. Students are encouraged to trial a wide range of genres and materials and work in a wide range of creative environments. Dance can provide students with the skills to become freelance dancers and instructors, choreographers, teachers, dance therapists as well as a variety of different positions in the Performing Arts industry.

Learners will study a wide variety of dance styles and the core concepts common to the Performing Arts industry.

The group are taught different dance genres and raise their self esteem and passion for dance. Students are encouraged to go on school trips to see dance shows and work with visiting artists. We have close links with Tristan Dance School as well as Northern School of Contemporary Dance, who visit All Saints once a year to audition our for their acclaimed Young Yorkshire Dancers course.
