Dance A Level at The College of Richard Collyer

Course description

The AS and A2 Dance courses are divided into three main areas; performance, choreography and analysis. Theoretical classes include study of professional choreographers focusing in detail on five works for AS and an additional work for the A2 course. Study of anatomy and physiology in the classroom supports students’ practical training and develops an awareness of healthy lifestyle and safe practice. Students take a weekly contemporary technique class covering a range of different styles during the course including release, Cunningham, Limon and Graham. Creative skills are developed through choreography classes and students have several opportunities to publicly perform their own work.

ENRICHMENT: new ground - Collyer's student dance company, provides further opportunities for students to perform and create work. DANCE EXTRA – our programme of after college technique classes in Ballet and Contemporary provides additional training for those serious about pursuing Dance as a career (half termly fee). Theatre trips, residentials and workshops with visiting companies also form an important part of the enrichment programme.
