Dance A level at Hills Road Sixth Form College

Course description

Dance "To touch, to move, to inspire - this is the true gift of dance."

Why choose Dance?

The study of dance is active, physically demanding, intellectually stimulating and fun. This course places huge emphasis on practical dance work across a range of styles, as well as on the analysis of professional choreography. Exploring the work of some of the foremost names in dance will lead to an understanding of their techniques and how to apply them to your own creative work, developing your confidence as an inspiring choreographer. You will learn how to train effectively and safely, and improve your skills through many performances both in our theatre and in the wider community. Additionally, you will develop your collaborative and communication skills, and learn how to write analytically about dance. Trips to the theatre to see live performances and workshops from visiting practitioners are an exciting and enriching part of the course.

The course is crucial in preparing you for degree or vocational dance courses, but is also ideal for you if you have a love of dance and wish to develop your own skills.
This is a highly practical course, with dance and creative work at the heart of the lessons.

"Dance has been amazing! I have taken part in workshops that I'll never forget; trying new styles and surprising myself in what I could do." Sophie Grafton
