I've just started year 10 and I chose dance because I absolutely hate P.E (I hate the people in it, the teachers, I can't do it,ect.). The thing is I can't dance. I'm usually out of time or I can't do the move/s. I see all my friends doing it just fine and one of my friends' just looks at me and laughs when I dance. I can't change options. The thing is, I used to do dance when I was younger for 4-5 years. Do any of you have any tips or advice?

Hmm... I've never done hip hop or salsa 😅. I've done ballet and my speciality is contemporary. The only advice I can give is to practice a lot, at school, and at home. Good thing with contemporary is that you can do ANYTHING as long as you have some bull **** to back it up.
Trust me.

Don't worry it's not a real subject anyway, I'd worry about something more important like maths. Now there's a subject.

Did you HAVE to chose between dance and PE?

Either beg to drop it or just try to get on with it. Even if you don't get a good grade it won't matter too much.

i took gcse dance as an option for my gcses at the end of year 8 and regretted it as soon as I got into y9. However I kept going and I am currently in Y11 and enjoying it alot more than I did throughout y9. GCSE Dance does get better as you go through the course. I am not an incredible dancer as I never danced when I was younger but I enjoy doing it and at the end of the day if your passionate about something then especially in a subject like dance, that will show through and will help you to achieve the grades you want as you will work harder for them. Try practicing at home in a big enough space or ask your teacher if you can go back after school and go through the dances with them. Teachers are there to help but aswell if you find yourself really struggling and begin to get embarrased then maybe the best idea is to get a parent or career to call in as usually teachers can't say no to this (what ive found when my mums rang in to school). Whatever you choose just make sure its what you want and not based of other people around you because a the end of the day its your gcse qualification.

i know how annoying it is when you get told this but you have got to just keep doing it over and over again. i am also a dancer but for some reasons did not take dance for gcse. now i realise just how much of a mistake it was.

it seems to me that you are quite passionate about it which is a start.i hear this'i can't dance' from loads of people,and tell them that everyone can dance. if you can walk, you are dancing,if you can reach for something up high or find something under the table very low you are dancing. dancers do not have to be slim and fit or have past experience to become a dancer. and the assumptions of big (fat)/disabled people dancing is not funny or ridiculous.

now being a dance freak the things i do to get more into dance is join dance classes outside school.
try different styles so you find out what is your type/or at least watch more performances,choreographies by people who have done your type of dance.(its how you get addicted)
research about different styles maybe even through watching dance shows.
when watching these videos see the good moves and try them. critise them (not literally) on what they are doing wrong.
listen to music whilst travelling you will automatically start choreographing a dance in your head
dance when you are angry(aggressive dance),dance when you are sad(maybe contemporary)dance when you are happy (anything jazz tap) this is when you are at home.

keep loving dance!

There were no other options? Was it just P.E or Dance?

Why did you choose it in the first. Place?
This is why before you pick something, think about if you like it instead of choosing it because other people told you to
