The Dance Department at Shireland makes dance accessible to all, offering students technical training in a wide range of styles, whilst also providing students with the space and support to express themselves individually. Many of our students have gone on to study dance in further education and gain careers in this field.
Dance is taught in our beautiful dance studio, complete with mirrors, sprung floor, ballet barres and sound system, and performances take place in our state-of-the-art Theatre. Our links with Birmingham Hippodrome Education Network enable us to offer incredible performance opportunities, both within the Academy and the local community, as well as regular contact with professionals currently working within the Creative Arts industries.
Dance enables students to develop transferable skills such as confidence, self-esteem, communication, time management and problem-solving, as well as the technical skills required to be successful in Dance.
