Weekly classes in Contemporary Dance, Musical Theatre Jazz and Tap are open to all pupils as part of our co-curricular programme and are delivered by specialist dance teachers through our partnership with the Phillipa Hogan School of Dance. Royal Academy of Dance Ballet classes from Grade 5 and above, Pointe work and for more advanced dancers, Ballet Technical Training is also available in the Dance School’s classes held at Charterhouse.
Pupils joining the PHSD ballet courses work towards RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) examinations, and some will be invited to join non-exam classes for gifted and talented dancers. There is also the opportunity to develop pointe work. Pupils wishing to develop their skills in Contemporary Dance may also do so through the Dance School which has a long-standing history of sending pupils on to further training within the dance world.
The Phillipa Hogan School of Dance also runs holiday courses and holds its biennial showcase in our Ben Travers Theatre.
