Performing Arts

Dance

Intent:

“The study of Dance is the study of universal language, communication and expression as we become more physically and emotionally efficient and aware.”

Key Stage 4

The course is highly demanding both academically and practically, encouraging quality from all students by examining written appreciation of dance (40%) performance and choreography of dance (60%). The specification gives space to interpretation and originality, challenging dancers to develop the highest level understanding and skills.

Students are expected to work collaboratively with others to develop their own creative areas of interest and realise these ideas in choreographed performance. Students are examined on technique in two set dances and performance skills as part of a duet or trio. The written examination covers six set works all developing an appreciation of different genres and choreographers as well as ensuring students reflect on their own practice. Students have a double period a week for practical work and a single period a week for theory as well as additional rehearsals.

Specifiation:

The Dance department follows the AQA GCSE specification, which can be found here: GCSE Dance Specification Specification for first teaching in 2016 (aqa.org.uk)

Drama

Intent:

“The study of Drama is the study of the world around us, how we relate and contribute to it.”

Key Stage 3      

In Drama, students experience working in a highly creative environment and are encouraged to explore their own ideas and professional work within lessons. The curriculum is mapped across Key Stage 3 based on the GCSE examination strands; creating, performing and appreciating the art form. Students are taught the skills and understanding needed to be successful at GCSE as well as broaden their own cultural, social and creative development.

Drama offers a diverse perspective of cultures, practitioners, time periods, creative processes and techniques. Students work practically in most lessons to explore and develop both transferable and subject specific skills.

Key Stage 4 

Throughout years 10 and 11, students develop a highly professional and insightful way of learning. An accelerated version of key stage 3, GCSE Drama hones skills in devising, performing and appreciating drama.

Students will study all content in a practical format trying and experimenting with styles, conventions and concepts to gain a better understanding of theatre and professional practice. During the course, students engage extensively with written coursework and examinations as well as practical lessons and additional rehearsals; Understanding Drama written exam (40%) Devising Drama written coursework and devised performance (40%) and Texts in Practice performance (20%).
