The Dance Department


Dance is a powerful and expressive subject which encourages students to develop their creative, physical, emotional and intellectual capacity. Dance is taught from Pre School to A level and pupils will gain a strong foundation of technique as they move through the school.

Our dance curriculum is built upon strong foundations with Ballet, later developing into contemporary, lyrical and jazz technique however pupils will have experience in other styles including, ballet, hip hop and salsa. The key elements of the curriculum are outlined below.

* creativity and choreography
* conditioning
* contemporary and jazz technical development
* performance skills
* appreciation of professional works
* analysing performance
* performance experience
* site specific choreography

Pupils will have a variety of performance experiences throughout their journey through school including ISA competitions, showcases and choreography competitions. We firmly believe in promoting dance for all, whilst also facilitating those who excel to achieve as highly as they can.

Students from Scarisbrick Hall School have won the ISA Northern Dance competitions in 2017 and 2018, as well as being the winners of the 2019 ISA National Dance Competition.
