You have regular weekly dance technique classes with two performance opportunities during the year. Classes are Monday to Friday and are delivered throughout the year. Ballet, contemporary and jazz technique will provide the backbone of your training. Additional classes in street, hip-hop, tap, musical theatre and other commercial dance styles focus on audition technique and performance. You are also given the opportunity to participate in master classes given by high profile, industry guests. In the lead up to your performances, you work with a variety of choreographers and you play an active part in creating performance work to be showcased in one of our state-of-the-art theatre spaces.
Teaching and Assessment
This Foundation Certificate is taught over our full teaching year (currently 30 weeks) and is delivered via a combination of practical dance technique classes and rehearsal sessions with some lectures and seminars. Your individual progress is monitored closely and feedback is given regularly throughout the year. We assess you through your work in class, your written assignments and your performance work. All modules are year-long apart from the Specialist Skills Project which allows a performance opportunity at the end of term one.
