Dancing was first listed as a taught activity in the 1863 Annual Report. Mr R Donbavand was the visiting teacher for both Dancing and Gymnastics in 1863 and was still doing so in 1868. It is uncertain what dancing then actually included. Fees in the 1860s for Dancing were 1 1/2 Guineas per quarter.

In 2008, Dance was introduced into the School as a formal subject.
