Dance

Subject Vision
“Dance is a diverse discipline, its more than movement and technique, it’s inspiring, it’s enjoyable, it’s motivating; to an individual, a group, a class and a school” (Alston, 2009)

The Dance Department at Unity College will provide an inclusive, relevant, exciting and challenging curriculum as well as a varied extra- curriculum programme. The Dance Department will encourage all students to fulfill their ability in a range of genres and techniques, achieving their target.  We aim to help all students develop a passion for dance so that they may develop as dancers, choreographers and performing artists.
