Welcome To Our New Website!


Welcome to the Falmouth School Dance Department, where movement becomes a language that captures imagination and evokes emotion. At Falmouth, we believe in fostering a deep connection between our students and the powerful expression that dance offers. Our curriculum is designed to immerse students in a rich tapestry of dance styles from around the world, including Bollywood, African, Hip Hop, The Haka, and Parkour.

In our dance program, students not only witness but actively engage in the exploration of diverse cultures through the medium of movement. Within the study of each dance style, students embark on a transformative journey, learning, performing, and creating using a variety of techniques such as choreography, improvisation, and repertoire.

Our scaffolded schemes of work provide a structured pathway for students to acquire skills and knowledge. Through learning and performing dances, they apply techniques to create their own choreography, culminating in a reflective evaluation of their successes and areas for improvement. This structured approach continues into our BTEC Level 2 and 3 courses, where students delve deeper into the study and replication of professional practitioners' work, using it as inspiration for their own choreographic endeavors.

The impact of our Dance Department goes beyond the classroom. Falmouth School students have pursued dance at specialized schools, studied choreography at universities, and some have become dance teachers in their own right. Join us in the Falmouth School Dance Department, where we celebrate the transformative power of movement, nurturing not only skilled dancers but also passionate individuals who carry the art of dance into diverse paths and endeavors.
