The Dance department aims to provide opportunities for students to experience and develop their knowledge, skills and experience of Dance alongside nurturing their ability to become independent, creative and confident young people. We aim to engage all students in original themes of work and provide high quality technical training to support students who choose to enter the professional industry.
The Dance Department prides itself on making dance accessible to all students, using a variety of dance styles either in the classroom, or through extra-curricular and touring companies. All students will experience dance during their time at Prince William School and will gain expertise in choreography, performance and analysis.
Many of our students continue on to develop careers in dance, choreography, teaching, journalism and performing.
The department is extremely well equipped with two dance studios, both of which house full height mirrors and sound systems, and our biggest studio is rigged with performance lighting. The future for Dance is exciting at Prince William School as, in addition to our current facilities, we are anticipating having some beautiful new spaces built.
