Head of Department Guidance

As senior Dance students, it is expected that all students on the course will attend workshops and either Fulston Dance Company on a weekly basis or arrange regular rehearsals with fellow dancers to continue to improve and refine skills and performances. All Dance students should take part in a range of performances throughout the year including recital evenings and concerts.

Students must dedicate sufficient time to practicing their solos, duet/trios and group choreographies on a regular basis. It is vital students arrange regular rehearsals with dancers to ensure they are prepared for the examination day.

Students should seek help from Mrs Marchant where needed, who can be found in the Performing Arts block/Studio.

KS4 Enrichment Sessions are available for students to attend at lunchtimes throughout the year. .
