The Dance Course
3 YEAR TRINITY DIPLOMA LEVEL 6
Our dance course is tailored towards dancer/singers. A student on this course will major in dance with singing and acting as supporting skills. The dance course prepares you for work in shows such as Cats, Wicked and Thriller Live. Our students also go on to work in the commercial field, cruise ships and cabaret. This course ensures that graduates enter the profession with a wide skill base and are prepared for any audition.
Year one will focus on developing core techniques in ballet, jazz, commercial and contemporary. Students will then underpin secondary skills in singing technique and acting. Class work follows a demanding structure allowing strength and consistency to develop. All first year students take part in the end of year production allowing them to demonstrate techniques developed throughout the year.
Year two starts to blend the application of techniques to performance and challenges students to push the boundaries in all areas of their training. Year two students take part in a full length in-house musical to enable students to develop the understanding of performance in practice. Class works focuses more on developing integrated practice with master classes in specialized styles featuring more heavily on their timetable.
Year three students focus mainly on performance allowing students to use all the skills they have developed from years one and two. Those who reach the required standard in the second semester will be given the opportunity to perform in our Agent Showcase at Pineapple Studios in London. Students will also take part in a fully staged musical learning to cope with the demands of live theatre. Dance students will work on an integrated performance of dance styles for their end of year assessment allowing them to demonstrate chorographic skills.
