Dance allows pupils at SHA to express themselves in a creative and physical way.
Dance enables pupils to develop their rhythm, musicality, confidence, performance skills, self-esteem and obviously has huge health benefits both physically and mentally.
During each academic year we introduce a minimum of one full term of dance into our PE curriculum, however in some cases this might be split into two different sections.
At Sparken Hill we strongly believe that dance allows pupils the opportunity to learn various different styles, some of which are Contemporary, Jazz, Street, Musical theatre, as well as different ethnic dances and dance routines from around the world. Pupils will also be taught the history behind certain influential dance pieces and develop the skills to dance the different styles.
Dance skills will be built up as the children move through the school.
