Dance company Sadler's Wells has claimed government plans to leave dance out of the new EBacc syllabus will be "deeply damaging" to the art form.
The EBacc certificate, set to replace some GCSEs from 2015, will focus only on core academic subjects.
He said there was a danger the UK could lose its "leading edge in creativity" unless arts disciplines remained within the national curriculum for secondary schools and had a place as a core subject in the baccalaureate.
