Are you suitable for A Level Dance?

Students should demonstrate a keen interest in dance, show

creativity and be able to perform in a variety of situations, including

solo and group work. Students should also be able to articulate

opinions in written form.

Many A Level Dance students go on to study Dance at various

Universities around the country. A number have gone on to dance

Professionally. Past students have also used their A Level dance

qualification to gain places on a range of undergraduate courses

such as: stage design, costume and prosthetics, physiotherapy,

performing arts, psychology and nutrition.  Some have become independent dance artists.

Entry requirements are a grade B in GCSE Dance and the equivalent in GCSE English. Students who have not studied Dance may still be considered for the course after an interview/audition with the Dance Department.

If you wish to take the one year AS in Dance, please discuss with Mrs Phillips
