Dance is a key genre within the Performing Arts. The ability to move with understanding and control transcends the genre of Dance and can add to Performance and understanding throughout the other areas of the Arts. We aim to provide a broad education in Dance that gives all of our students a tool kit with which to explore the many dimensions of the subject throughout their time at MEPA Academy and beyond. GCSE Dance is an option at Key stage 4 for Students.

We aim to develop:

  • an interest in the subject
  • an awareness of cultural and historical context
  • creativity and excellence 
  • A safe platform for all students to explore and develop their skills in all styles of Dance


At KS3, students will study a range of Dance styles and practitioners to build and develop core skills and understanding across our vocational curriculum and as preparation for GCSE Dance for those that wish to take this option at Key stage 4.
