“Dance allows us to speak a language that words cannot express”
Studying Dance in school gives students the freedom to be expressive, creative and imaginative.
Dance at Nunnery Wood aims to excite and inspire. We believe that Dance offers students the chance to succeed and achieve whilst developing confidence, self-belief, creativity and collaborative skills.
We feel it is of equal importance to offer our students exciting opportunities both in and out of the classroom. Throughout Key Stage 3 students experience a vast range of dance styles through choreography, performance and critiquing dance. We provide an extensive range of extra-curricular activities giving students the opportunity to be involved in shows, musicals and performances. There are weekly clubs for all year groups including our own boys dance company Limitless. We have strong links with primary schools and offer our students opportunities to work with primary school pupils through the Dance Enrichment programme.
Our students are given opportunities to participate in annual dance festivals, including; Worcestershire Dancing Festival, GCSE Dance Sharing Outstanding Practice, Circuit Dance Festival and Worcester Dance Festival. Students are also given the opportunity to work with external Dance specialists and companies. Examples include; Flexus Dance Collective, Fuzzy Logic Dance Company, Rubix Dance, 2Faced Dance Company and Rambert Dance Company. Theatre trips and outings to various Dance venues are regularly organised including; Pineapple Dance Studios, London’s West End, Birmingham Hippodrome, DanceXchange, Artrix Theatre and Malvern Theatre. Visiting these venues enables students to see live performances and shows, along with the opportunity to participate in workshops.
