This group work on developing key stage skills further.  They improvise, devise and analyse text on a deeper level and explore movement further and begin
to develop a link between the two.   Themes tend to be more complex and thought provoking linking their literacy with emotional and social development.

Classical Ballet the most formal of dance styles is known for having a graceful and ethereal quality. The class will introduce basic ballet which will build strength,
improve co-ordination and keep the mind and body active.

Contemporary Dance centres more on inventive steps performed with a lower centre of gravity. It is athletic and more demanding and will improve levels of coordination,
concentration, stamina and expression.

is a rhythmical dance form which encourages an understanding of beat, time signatures and musical expression as well as co-ordination, concentration and stamina.

Theatre Studies will include speech & dialogue study, audition techniques, theatre practice and performance.

Class numbers will be limited so booking is essential.
