Dance is a popular and well developed area of the curriculum at The Westleigh School. Students can express themselves through this creative and expressive art form.

Students study Dance at Key Stage 3 as a unit within Physical Education. Areas include Performance and Choreography in various dance styles where they are encouraged to develop into confident and artistic performers.

At Key Stage 4 students are given the opportunity to opt for BTEC Dance.

Extra-Curricular Dance is extremely popular at The Westleigh School and clubs are available each lunchtime and every evening after school.

We also produce a yearly dance show which is one of the highlights of the School’s calendar, involving over 100 students.


“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.”
