The co-curricular dance programme offers both graded examination classes in Modern and Ballet, with ISTD and RAD exam boards respectively, as well as a vast number of classes for boys and girls of all abilities in Contemporary, Commercial, Ballet, Tap, Street, Acrobatics, Yoga and much more.

The highlights of the dance year include the annual Dance Show, showcasing all students involved in dance, from beginners to future professionals. The inter-house Dance Competition challenges pupils from all 17 houses to work as a team on their own choreographies. Both events are always extremely popular with students, staff and families alike and create a buzz around College. We also offer opportunities for coursework and student-led work to be showcased throughout the year at a variety of events; there are opportunities for everyone.

For the extremely dedicated, talented and driven performers, we offer opportunities for auditioned performance groups such as our Boys Dance Company, our acrobatic or Acro Team group and the Wellington Dance Company.  We also have strong links with Centres for Advanced Dance Training in London and with Berkshire Youth Dance Company and Hampshire Youth Dance Company offering excellent extension opportunities. This offers pupils the chance to take dance to an extremely high level and potentially into their future careers. Our Dance Company have, in the past, performed curtain raisers with Avant Garde Dance in Woking and regularly wow audiences in the end of year Speech Day celebrations.
