Course description


Performing Arts is a course designed to encourage students to further their exploration of performance techniques at a higher level. Students will develop and use a range of skills across the three separate disciplines of Dance, Music and Drama, culminating in many performances. Students will also study the performing arts industry and a range of career paths.



In year two, the course is designed to further develop the disciplines of dance, singing and acting on a wider and more advanced scale. Students will undertake four units which work across the disciplines to enable them to develop their abilities as an all round performer.
