Dance is an important part of the curriculum and a popular extra-curricular activity at Woodside. Dance is taught as part of the PE curriculum and, for year 3 for the past 5 years, ballet has also been taught as part of The Royal Ballet "Chance to Dance" scheme. Children have a term of lessons led by professional dancers and musicians from The Royal Ballet, take part in a performance at The Thameside Theatre, attend a ballet at Covent Garden and gifted children are identified and given the chance to continue lessons with The Royal Ballet.


Infant children have a music player outside at lunchtime and are encouraged to try disco dancing, there is a free lunchtime club for juniors and Woodside is the venue for various external dance groups with many of our pupils attending their classes.
