Dance at The Sixth Form College Colchester

Course description

Choreography, Anatomy and Physiology, Performance and Dance Appreciation are all central to the study of AS/A Level Dance. The course is broadly based and encourages students to explore the boundaries of dance evenly through both practical and theoretical work. Students will study one compulsory and one optional area of study alongside a reflection and understanding of their own choreographic and perfomance practice.

Students will also choreograph and perform a solo and perform in a duet/trio piece jointly choreographed with their tutor.

Entry requirements

Previous study at GCSE is not esstional although, it must be noted that GCSE is a natural progression into AS study. It is expected that all students will have considerable experience of practical Ballet and/or Comteporary Dance. A grade C (or 4) or above in GCSE English or English Language, and English Literature is required. All prospective students will be expected to attend an informal practical assessment following induction.
