Entry

  • Entry by audition in Autumn and Spring terms.
  • The Hammond has a Combined First Year for incoming students on the 3 year Diploma Course. This crucial first year has purposely been designed to provide a comprehensive and thorough grounding for all students in the areas of Dance, Acting and Singing - the 'triple threat' of the entertainment industry, now demanded as a matter of course.
  • Serving as the perfect grounding for the Professional Diploma in Performing Arts (Dance) or Professional Diploma in Performing Arts (Musical Theatre) and validated by Trinity College, London, this busy and fruitful year will provide the following:
  • A complete, professional and comprehensive course in a broad range of dance styles and techniques - contemporary, jazz, street and tap - with classical ballet as the core and foundation of technique and strength to underpin all these genres.
  • A range of performance opportunities supported by practical dramatic and vocal training, designed to develop in students all the essential skills required for a career in performance in the theatre, and other associated industries and media.
  • A programme of Integrated Professional Studies to broaden and deepen students' knowledge and understanding of Musical Theatre, Dance and Performance. The essential theoretical material contained within this programme, which will run across all three years, 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 transferable skills, and learn to engage effectively in the study, practice and appreciation of performance.
  • Successful students proceeding to Professional Studies Year two at The Hammond will then be offered a place on either The Dance, or Musical Theatre Course.
