Dance Qualifications

Why AQA Dance?

We’ve worked closely with teachers to design GCSE, AS and A-level Dance specifications to inspire, challenge and motivate every student, no matter what their level of ability, while supporting you in developing creative and engaging lessons.

Dance is a powerful and inspiring qualification that encourages students to develop their creative, physical, emotional and intellectual capacity, whatever their previous experience in the subject.

Our GCSE offers clear, logical progression to AS and A-level. We’ve bridged the gap between AS and A-level and higher education providers, giving your students the skills and experience to better prepare them for the demands of higher education or the workplace.
