Performing Arts

Drama

Crestwood drama department encourages pupils to further develop and expand their knowledge of the subject through participating in activities outside of lessons. Each year Crestwood invites pupils of all key stages to take part in several extra curriculum activities such as, the school musical, the gifted and talented Theatre company, Broken Leg, which produces a play within the summer term and visiting workshops from professional theatre companies such as Frantic Assembly and National Youth Theatre.

 

In order to fully prepare KS4 students for their practical examinations, they are required to perform a preview night in which the pupils can invite their family and friends to view the final outcome of months of rehearsals.

In addition to this, Crestwood also organised several theatre trips per year such as ‘Les Mis’, ‘The Shawshank Redemption’, ‘The Woman in Black’ and ‘Matilda’. As a department, we recognise that live performance is a vital and inspiring element to the subject of drama.

Dance

Dance is an after-school enrichment here the students come to have fun and experience different styles of dance. They dance and choreograph to various styles such as contemporary, street and gymnastics. It is purely done for enjoyment and entertainment, which is then sometimes taken out to the public or local competitions.

We have weekly after school dance session which is available to both boys and girls. Students get to experience different styles of dance. They dance and choreograph various styles such as contemporary, street and rhythmic gymnastics, activities that don’t form part of our curriculum. Students can explore an enthusiasm for dance on all levels, our after school dance programme allows students enjoy dance, learn a new skill, keep fit and meet new friends, on occasions students have requested they enter local or regional dance competitions which we always facilitate.
