This new commercial dance programme has two aims: direct entry into the profession or as an addition to your Level 3 qualifications for pre-entry to further training onto a degree or alternative training programme.
You’ll need to be an instinctive and talented performer, interested in enhancing your existing experience and training to help you reach your career aspirations.
Average places available: up to 20 each year.
This programme is designed to help sharpen your competitive edge as a degree programme applicant or as an emerging independent dance artist. While it’s not a guaranteed passport to ours or other degree programmes, students who have studied a similar programme with us in the past have been offered places at Arts Educational, Bird College, Laine Theatre Arts, London Studio Centre and Urdang Academy, among others. Several have gone on to study abroad at places like Broadway Dance Centre and The Edge in LA, others are represented by some of the top dance agents in the UK such as AMCK, Boss Creative Entertainment, Dancers Inc, Mark Summers Casting and Rudeye.
As a commercial dance artist, your ambitions may lie in working in a variety of areas including music videos, tours and West End shows. This programme helps you become a versatile, confident and competitive performer with a strong insight into the industry you are about to enter.
This is a new course, but we previously ran a similar course in Performing Arts (Dance) and each year we conduct a survey of our alumni who completed that programme to find out what they did after leaving us.
