GCSE overview

GCSE Dance helps students to develop technical and expressive skills as well as knowledge and understanding of dance through performance, choreography and critical appreciation.

We offer first-rate teaching with consistently excellent results, equipping students to progress to further in their dance studies. Students benefit from our strong links with the professional dance industry and other academic institutions through dance workshops and tutorials.

Former students have gone on to study dance related subjects at higher education level, or to develop their careers in:

  • teaching,
  • choreography,
  • performance, and
  • dance administration.

The course combines practical and written skills with a focus on choreography and performance, as well as analysis and criticism of dance.

“Welcome to the Royal Academy of Dance. I am delighted that you are interested in pursuing your dance training here with us. I hope that the website gives you some insight into studying GCSE Dance at the RAD and very much look forward to welcoming you in the new academic year.”
Hazel Barber, Head of Centre for the Royal Academy of Dance.
