Dance at Stantonbury Campus

Course description

The aim of the AS/A2 Level course is to give students a broad knowledge of Dance which they can articulate through the study of choreography, performance and appreciation. Over the two years students will study the following: composition, performance, study one genre of dance, anatomy, health and safety and analyse a set work in the chosen study area. This course could lead to higher education to study Dance. It would also be useful in other Performing Art subjects. The examination consists of four units over a 2 year course. At the end of the first year, students will sit a written examination based on the dancer as a performer, the process and the craft of choreography and the significance of dances. They will also choreograph a solo and perform in a duo/trio. In the second year students will choreograph a group piece. They will also sit another written examination based on a chosen dance genre. Students will also analyze a set work within the chosen genre and perform a solo reflecting the chosen style of dance. You will have the opportunity to take part in of professional dance workshops, theatre trips, attend extra‐curricular technique classes and perform at different venues. One of the main highlights next year will be working with a professional choreographer on a piece that will be performed in ‘Dance Xchange’ in Milton Keynes Theatre.


Five level two qualifications (e.g. A* - C as GCSE) At least four of these grades will be from GCSEs. Grade C or above in GCSE dance preferable
