St Edmund's



Dance at St Edmund’s is both exhilarating and liberating to study.  Amy Payne, our dance teacher and choreographer, brings many years of professional experience with her to work creatively with pupils in and out of the classroom. 

Her high quality work results in a sense of joy that is shared by those on the stage and watching in the sell-out crowds.

Dance is very much at the heart of our creative output and is always a highlight of the school year.  It can be a huge force for good, effectively drawing people together and leveling everyone through sheer hard work. 

GCSE Dance helps pupils develop technical and expressive skills as well as knowledge and understanding of dance through performance, choreography and critical appreciation.  Dance and movement are also incorporated into the many IGCSE and A-level Drama practical performances for examination and have helped us achieve grades continually at the top of the mark scheme.
