GCSE Dance Course & Classes

Graham School of Dance is registered with Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA), and our students take GCSE Dance following their syllabus. This is invaluable in broadening pupils’ understanding and appreciation of Dance.

GCSE Dance course from Graham School of Dance in Bishop's Stortford

The GCSE Dance course incorporates written work (Critical Appreciation of Dance) but mainly focuses on practical aspects of dance, including performance of a set dance, of a solo composition, plus devising and performing choreography in a solo, duo or group. All GCSE dance pupils take classes in Contemporary Dance as well as Ballet, as part of their studies.

The GCSE Dance course uses prescribed professional works which are mainly Contemporary Dance based, and students have opportunities to see a number of live performances, both locally and in top London venues, as well as taking part in specially arranged Workshops run by teachers, examiners and professionals currently performing in the works they are studying.

GCSE Dance Lessons in HertfordshireThe GCSE Dance course is taken by Graham School of Dance teacher Caitlin Bresnen BA (Hons) with QTS, who also teaches at City of London School for Girls.

Our GCSE dance classes have the additional advantage of being run for pupils before they start the main volume of their standard GCSE subjects, thus enabling them to gain the GCSE dance qualification before Year 11.

Graham School of Dance is located in Bishop's Stortford on the Hertfordshire and Essex border, ideally located for local students from both Hertfordshire and Essex who wish to attain their GCSE dance qualification.
