This course gives students the practical technique, skills and knowledge to take the next steps towards becoming a professional dance artist whether on stage or creating their own productions. If students have a genuine interest in all aspects of dance, enjoy watching and performing dance and want to study the dancer in action, then the vocational aspects of this course will benefit them greatly. They will need dedication, drive and determination for the course and will be rewarded through the many college productions we deliver, the improvement in skill level and a deeper understanding of dance within history, culture and todays industry. This course will be split into four different categories; technique, creative, performance and theoretical. It includes a collection of different units such as urban dance, choreographic principles, arts in the community, jazz and classical ballet technique.
