One of the most popular extracurricular activities, Ballet lessons take place throughout the day in the mirrored dance studio. Girls can take RAD exams and more experienced dancers can follow the ISTD courses. Ballet work is showcased in the annual Highlights show and theatre trips and workshops with companies such as Ballet Rambert and Northern Ballet are regular events in the Wycombe Abbey diary.
This course appeals to girls with a genuine passion and interest in Dance. Girls follow the ISTD syllabus and have weekly lesson in the mirrored dance studio.
Tap lessons take place once a week with girls working toward ISTD exams and preparing for Highlights. Beginners and more experienced ‘tappers' are always welcome.
Street Dance is an extremely popular dance style at Wycombe Abbey. Street Dance itself can take many forms such as traditional, commercial and freestyle - all of these variations are explored and utilised at Wycombe. The Street Dance company appoints a Captain each year who auditions a large number of girls. The chosen performers train weekly to choreograph and produce an exciting and edgey routine. This Street Dance routine is performed in the Spring term at Highlights.
