      Dance Leaders

      If you would like to develop your leadership qualities in Dance you can deliver a KS3 Dance Club to a particular year group or smaller group of dancers. Running your own club would involve collaborating with a couple of your friends/peers in order to choreograph an original piece of dance, teaching the dance once a week, over a number of weeks (usually 6-8 weeks) and finally rehearsing the piece with our young dancers in order to prepare it for a performance eg an assembly.

      • 20 places available for Y9, 10 and 11 students to run KS3 Dance Clubs
      • With Primary Dance Leaders – 40 places available

      The qualities you will need to demonstrate are:

      • reliability in attending all sessions 
      • organisation in delivering your sessions effectively
      • cooperation in working alongside your fellow dance leaders 
      • empathy for the needs of your young dancers
      • passion and enthusiasm for your subject
      • creativity in developing your dance piece
      • positivity in helping to develop a successful learning environment
