The Dance Department are proud of the committed and dedicated dancers we have here already at Thorns and constantly strive to give any student the opportunity to pursue their interest in Dance. Our motto is ‘Dance – Believe – Achieve’ and we offer students the chance to develop their skills in a variety of different dance styles.
Dance is taught to all students at Key Stage 3 and is offered as a BTEC option in Years 10 and 11. Lessons are taught in our beautiful, purpose built dance studio which is a fantastic space for students to create and perform dances that showcase their talents.
The department prides itself in taking part in community events and hosts a show each year. Students will regularly have access to professional dance artists in a variety of styles and are given opportunities to attend live performances at the theatre.

Overload – Year 7
Fusion – Year 8 & 9
NRG – More Able Dancers (Year 9-11)
