This Level 3 BTEC (equivalent to one A Level) is for learners who are interested in learning about the performing arts sector alongside other fields of study, with a view to progressing to a wide range of higher education courses.
Through the mandatory units learners will gain a good understanding of the work of influential practitioners to inform their own work and practice at the same time as developing physical techniques in dance, musical and physical theatre. A large part of this course is based around group work that encourage students to develop vital transferable skills.
Examples of the optional units include, Classical Ballet, Street Dance, Acting Styles, Developing the Voice for Performance and Variety Performance.
To be accepted into De Lisle College Sixth Form students need to achieve 4 grade 4's and 2 grade 5's.
