Performing Arts

Curriculum Leader: Nicola Baker

Performing Arts (including drama, and dance)

It is the aim of the Performing Arts department at Everest Community Academy to provide a stimulating and exciting curriculum from within which students of all abilities can achieve their full potential. Performing Arts is a potent vehicle for communicating and learning with a combination of techniques that will provide students with a number of skills.

Drama incorporates social skills, enabling students to gain confidence and awareness when dealing with other people, as well as building abilities to create new work and learn performance skills. It teaches students dramatic skills and theatrical techniques as well as the history of theatre around the world.

Dance teaches skills about choreography, performance and appreciation of professional works. Students experience a range of dance styles and are encouraged to work collaboratively with their peers when creating new movement.
