Dance lessons in Ballet, Tap, Modern Jazz and Street Dance were formally introduced to Haileybury at the start of 2005. Interest has steadily grown and there are up to 100 pupils involved in the classes that take place on Tuesday evenings, starting from 5.30 pm.
Pupils are encouraged to participate in, and receive instruction for, performance opportunities. The three-quarter hour lessons are primarily aimed at a once-yearly Dance Show, held early in March. There is also the possibility of taking Dance qualifications.
Classes are mainly given in Big School, which provides a beautiful and spacious environment. Bradby Hall and the Attlee Room are also used to take up overflow of interest.
Dance is managed by Adrian Box and pupil representatives. Instruction is delivered by our principal visiting teacher, Michelle King, supported by Nicky Mason.
For details of opportunities, application forms or for any questions you may have about Dance, please contact Adrian Box.
