This highly practical two-year course for students aged 16-18 is equivalent to 3 A Levels and will give you a broad foundation in dance. It makes use of the college's modern theatre, performance spaces, changing rooms and costume store, and focuses on styles such as ballet, contemporary, jazz and street dance. There will also be intensive workshops on a range of performance subjects. You will study the craft of choreography and physical theatre in relation to your production projects and performances.
