Celebrating Dance at Bushey Meads

GCSE and A Level Dance at Bushey Meads allows our students to explore a range of dance styles with a heavy focus on both performance and choreography. In both the A Level and GCSE Dance courses, students are required to choreograph solo dance works, perform set choreography and collectively choreograph group pieces. Not only does dance help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and push your physical boundaries, it also allows you to develop future life skills including teamwork, communication, self-discipline and leadership. Students learn in a fantastic and supportive environment, focused on developing artistic excellence, intellectual curiosity and creative mindset. The Year 11 GCSE dance students have completed all three components of their practical assessments, with the final Choreography assessment concluding the examination period on Thursday 19th March. The students were to choose a stimulus from a set list of five, a piece of music, their dancers and then use these aspects to choreograph their dance. Through a challenging two-day process, the students applied the last pieces of feedback and performed their choreographies to myself and an external moderator. All students worked extremely hard and as a result created some unique and imaginative solos and duets. I am incredibly proud of the Year 11 dancers and all they have achieved since September.

Stay safe and keep dancing!
