Ballet, Modern, Tap, Jazz and Contemporary

In two large, bright studios, dance at Roedean offers pupils a chance to develop dance skills for enjoyment or for a career in dance or the Performing Arts. 

The development of Ballet, Modern, Tap, Jazz and Contemporary has helped to broaden the students’ skills and encourages them to explore different styles.  We offer a range of lessons, from once a week for enjoyment, to several hours per week for those who want to pursue it more seriously or even consider dance as a possible profession.

The department is run by the Curriculum lead for Dance and also the Head of Co-Curricular Dance, this allows the school to have experienced teachers on site to organise the day-to-day running of the department and to make sure that Dance is represented in all areas of school life.

Dance Trips

Several dance trips are organised, as well as overseas trips to help encourage appreciation and stimulate interest.

Extra-curricular Dance

Extra-curricular dance offers many different genres of dance at varying levels, ranging from beginner classes up to advanced standard.  All these can be taken in classes but are also offered as private lessons or shared lessons.  Class sizes vary depending on the level, but they are usually small.​
