Performing Arts Diploma (Dance) at Studio 79 – BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Performing Arts

Run in collaboration with Studio 79, this one-year course combines practical and theoretical assignments and is heavily performance based. You will be required to work in groups as well as individually on various assignments and actively provide creative input along the rehearsal process to produce exciting and dynamic new work for your projects.

Learners will gain an overview of the dance industry, as well as obtaining practical skills essential to understanding performance, technical training, rehearsal and group work. They will also develop key skills in IT, Communication, The Performing Arts Business and obtain an understanding of Health & Fitness.

We offer regular timetabled performances including The Christmas Show, Mass Movement, Move it!, and the college ends the academic year with a performance at Leicester’s prestigious Curve Theatre.

When college productions are scheduled, there will be extra rehearsal sessions added to the timetable, which you will be expected to attend.
