Dance

We have designed our curriculum using the KS3 National Curriculum and it is delivered under the framework of the IB Middle Years programme. We have also referenced the KS2 Programmes of Study in our initial planning.

Mascalls Academy dance department aims to develop young creatives who are open minded and willing to explore concepts and ideas through the medium of dance. We hope to inspire self-confidence, discipline and a respect for the creative arts, alongside supporting physical and mental wellbeing through the development of transferable skills such as communication and leadership.

Through the exploration of three key areas, Technique, Choreography and performance, we aim to encourage students to formulate their own opinions and ideas and be able to communicate these effectively, both verbally and non-verbally. It is our goal to provide all students with a safe and creative environment to explore dance in a positive and impartial way.
