This exciting and varied course is often changed and tailored to the practitioners we have in any one year group. Topics can include: performance workshops, performing arts business, historical context of performance, musical theatre, classical, tap, jazz, street and contemporary dance techniques.
For a National Extended Certificate (equivalent to one A Level) students will complete 4 modules over 2 years. The course integrates the three art forms of dance, drama and music. Students will be expected to perform regularly to audiences and complete written assignments and log books.
A commitment to performances and rehearsals within and outside of College hours is important, as is the requirement to see professional productions regularly and take part in workshops.
Each unit is assessed separately on its completion throughout the two years. Combinations of coursework, digitalised production diaries/log books, written reports, presentations and performances, will assess students’ work. It is essential that all students meet deadlines for work.
