Dance is a dynamic subject led by a specialist with experience in the industry. Dance is a performing art consisting of purposefully selected sequences of human movement.  This movement has aesthetic and symbolic value. Dance can be categorised and described by choreography, by its repertoire of movements, or by its historical periods or place of origin.

At Lea Valley the department ethos aims for all students to have the opportunity to participate in a range of styles of dance. The units of work encourage all students to develop their creativity skills, work with a variety of people developing their team work skills as well as increasing their confidence levels to perform in front of others. The curriculum offers a range of units of work including contemporary, hip hop and cultural dance. The department regularly participates local and regional competitions including in the Step into Dance Competition with annual success.
