Dance Training

Dance training is centred around classical ballet and includes jazz, and tap, street and contemporary disciplines.  In the Lower School, Dance classes are integrated with the school timetable and extend until 6pm on weekdays; pupils also attend 3 hours of Dance classes in school on Saturday mornings.  Dance students also receive vocal training and  Drama training as part of their course.

Senior Dance

Senior Dance students choose to follow either of our National Diploma courses validated by Trinity College, in Dance or Musical Theatre.  These level 6 courses lead directly to qualifications suitable for employment in the Performing Arts industry.  With classical Dance as the focus, they offer also training in jazz, tap, street and contemporary disciplines and are supported, as appropriate to the course selected, by classes in Acting, Singing and Integrated Professional studies.  

contemp

Our own teaching staff, who include among their number senior figures from the world of Dance and Musical Theatre, are supplemented by visiting professionals who lead workshops and provide masterclasses.

The programme of Integrated Professional Studies broadens and deepens students' knowledge and understanding of Musical Theatre, Dance and Performance.  This essential theoretical material supports the practical and technical grounding covered in the Diploma and enables students to develop the ability to work confidently and flexibly as professionals.  They become critical independent thinkers with a wide range of transferrable skills and learn to engage effectively in the study, practice and appreciation of performance.
