Our aim is to enable as many students as possible within school to be involved in dance activities as performers, choreographers or club leaders. A range of lunchtime and after school clubs are offered to all students with a focus on participation and enjoyment. In addition, we create challenge for our most gifted dancers by inviting them to join our two performance groups. In the past these groups have worked with professional artists and performed at many outside venues including Sadlers Wells Theatre.
DanceFest in January is our showcase performance event which runs with a theme and involves performers from all year groups, classes and clubs. Chance 2 Dance is a more informal summer show and gives students the chance to create and perform dances of their own choice.
This array of extra-curricular opportunity supports the dance provision within the curriculum at Key Stage 3 through to 5.
Students have the opportunity to develop leadership through group performance, choreography and leading clubs and sessions for Hayes students and those from local primary schools.
Students are encouraged to go and watch dance live!!
