We’ve worked with dance teachers and subject experts to create a specification that gives you the freedom to create lessons that will inspire and motivate all your students.
We’ve set relevant and exciting stimuli for all choreography and broadened our range of professional works. The study of the anthology of professional works will develop students’ ability to critically appraise dances of different styles and cultural influences, providing a springboard for engaging practical tasks.
Our written assessment is clear, well-structured and easy for students to understand.
Prepare for your teaching year. Information, support and services to help you deliver the specification.
