Performing & Production Arts UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma at LeSoCo

Course description

This programme is for those who already have some experience of dance training, and are looking to build on their existing skills and expand their understanding of dance. The course is perfect for you if you are considering pursuing dance at degree level at either a vocational dance school or university, and/or as a career in the future. By studying on this programme you will develop your technical, performance and creative skills in dance at intermediate level through intensive daily classes in ballet, contemporary and jazz, as well as weekly choreography lessons. You will also strengthen your knowledge of dance history and theory, and gain valuable experience in both creating and performing in new works alongside professional dance artists. 

Some applicants will also be considered for an additional qualification in the form of AS Dance based on their GCSE English grades and a reference. This will provide the opportunity to study dance practitioners and works in more detail and be assessed on your choreography and performance skills through solo and duet/trio work. AS Dance is equivalent to half an A-level which would provide extra UCAS points on application to vocational schools and universities.

Entry requirements

Four GCSEs at grades A*-C; one of which must be GCSE English or GCSE Mathematics. Or successful completion of a Level 2 substantial qualification in a related subject - plus an initial assessment that indicates an appropriate level of English and mathematical ability, and a satisfactory reference.

Future opportunities

On successful completion of the first year, many students progress onto the second year in order to complete an Extended Diploma (equivalent to three A-levels). You can also progress onto our HND in Performing Arts.
