GCSE DANCE                                              *Application now open for 2022 entry* 

COURSE OVERVIEW

Our GCSE Dance Course helps students to develop technical and expressive skills as well as knowledge and understanding of dance through performance, choreography and critical appreciation.

The course combines practical and written skills with a focus on choreography and performance, as well as analysis and criticism of dance.

The course takes place over three hours every Saturday morning (during term time) and over two academic years. In the second year, an intensive rehearsal period is run during February half term, ahead of the practical moderations.

Practical and written exams will be held between April and June in the second year.

UNIT 1: Performance and Choreography - Practical Exam 60%
- Perform set phrases through a solo performance (30%)
- Solo or group choreography (30%)


UNIT 2: Dance appreciation - Written exam 1.5 hours 40%
- Based on students own practice in performance and choreography and the GCSE Dance Anthology

OUR MISSION 

Our aim is to provide an environment where like minded students are able to study dance as an art form, which contributes to aesthetic and social development and, as a physical activity, it promotes fitness and well-being. 

At The DFC we will always move forward with a small cohort, enabling each student to work closely with their Teachers, ensuring they get the best possible experience throughout the course. 

GCSE Dance is seen less frequently within the school curriculum, therefore, we endeavour to provide a professionally designed course for those who still wish to study Dance at Level 2. 

TIMETABLE 

The GCSE Dance Course will always run for 3 hours on a Saturday Morning during term time. In the 2nd year there is an intensive rehearsal period during February Half Term ahead of the practical moderations.
