Performing Arts

Dance

Dance is an expressive, creative and dynamic art form.  It helps shape a person’s sense of identity and draws out leadership skills, teamwork, discipline, critical thinking and problem solving. The physical activity promotes a healthy lifestyle and a strong sense of well-being in addition to improving strength, flexibility, endurance and balance.

At Willenhall E-ACT Academy, Dance forms a valuable part of the curriculum and is purposely varied to allow students with different dance backgrounds and abilities to succeed.  They gain an understanding of the professional world of Performing Arts and extend their knowledge of dance technique whilst developing important skills, both specific to dance and those which are transferable.

  • Willenhall Dance Club (Tues 3-4pm)
  • Year 10 and 11 dance open studio for examination practice (Thursday)
