Dance Level 3

The course has a strong emphasis on practical dance techniques. You will participate in a variety of dance units covering techniques that will include jazz, tap, contemporary, urban and ballet. Much of the work undertaken will be continually assessed to monitor progress. The skills developed in the individual units will be brought together in performances including our annual dance evening.

It is suited to learners who are committed to going into the performing arts and who appreciate the need for both the practical and academic skills to survive the rigours of the performing arts industry.
