International Summer School and Summer Camp for Girls

I loved dance because I spent time dancing with a professional. It’s a dream.

Dance, Drama and Music

Heathfield’s very smart, new Performing Arts Centre  gives all the girls a  beautiful space to take part in many different lessons, workshops and shows.  As well as a  240 seater theatre,  there are separate drama and music rooms with a dance studio next door in the Sports Hall.

Dance

Our specialist teachers offer a range of classes teaching different  dance styles and combine dance with aerobic  fitness in some sessions.  We hold dances with live music, such as Scottish dancing and English Country dancing, and also have regular discos, often with a special dress theme.  Dance also plays an important part in many of our Summer School and Summer Camp shows. Classes include:

  • Contemporary
  • Hip-hop
  • Jazz
  • Salsa
  • Street
  • Ballet introduction
  • Aerobics
  • Zumba

Drama

There is a lot of drama at Heathfield! From hour-long drama sessions to working on proper performances of their own stories and scripts, the girls are often in the studio or on stage working on the following:

  • Improvisation
  • Mime
  • Video
  • Drama games
  • Stage-fighting
  • Workshop performances
  • Drama shows

Music

We always have several talented musicians on the staff who run choirs and ensembles and perform in our staff band. The girls can work with the band but also play their own instruments as  Heathfield has a set of music practice rooms;  each also has a piano. No show at Heathfield is complete without several musical performances and the girls enjoy:

  • Percussion workshops
  • Choral singing
  • A capella singing
  • Singing and playing with the staff band
  • Performing at the Talent Show

Heathfield School: the year-round school accepts girls as boarders and day girls from age 11 to 18.
