Curriculum Statement

At Hillyfield we believe that Dance can play an exciting and leading role in providing dynamic focus for the educational experience of its young people. All children are encouraged and given the freedom to find new ways of learning and expressing themselves creatively through movement and Dance. 

Our Dance classes consist of technique exercises, creative time, group work, solo work and most of all fun! During each topic the children will learn dance movements, create their own movement and work with others in either pairs or small groups to choreograph short dances which helps to enhance team building, sharing, and collaborating ideas. Dance also helps to build self-confidence and helps children to mature emotionally by expressing thoughts and ideas in a more practical way.


Dance Events

Across the School we try to create regular opportunities for children to show their dance learning. These include:

Musical Productions

Talent Shows

Dance Clubs

National Dance Competitions

Schemes of Work

At Hillyfield we follow the National Dance Teachers Association guidelines for primary school Dance, which also link to the national PE curriculum. We try to incorporate a range of styles across the curriculum and use different core works to inspire and help students build a strong appreciation for dance performance .
