Performing Arts (Dance) HNC/HND

Course overview

The aim of this course is to give you the dance tech­nique you will require to sus­tain a pro­fes­sion­al career in dance. There is an inten­sive mix of stu­dio prac­tice, sup­port­ed by research, pro­fes­sion­al dance work­shops, exter­nal lec­tures, guest speak­ers, dance agency work­shops and performances.

The course places indus­try at its core, giv­ing you reg­u­lar oppor­tu­ni­ties to work along­side artists for dance videos, nation­al com­pe­ti­tions, TV work and com­mu­ni­ty dance, all of which will give you a real-life insight in to the demands and real­i­ty of the dance industry.

This course is ran by our part­ners Addict Dance Stu­dios based in Leices­ter. Addict Dance Acad­e­my has nine pro­fes­sion­al stan­dard dance stu­dios, two class­rooms, chang­ing facil­i­ties and a stu­dent com­mon room. There are also strong links with local the­atres for exter­nal practice.

Your tech­nique class­es will be taught by pro­fes­sion­al dancers who are cur­rent­ly active in the indus­try work­ing with Rita Ora, Cheryl Cole, Mari­ah Carey, as well as on The Voice and X Fac­tor. You will devel­op your­self out­side of the stu­dio by cre­at­ing a pro­fes­sion­al pro­file and dance reel ready for your audi­tions and for net­work­ing with agen­cies. You will pre­pare your body, mind and think­ing for your audi­tions and cho­sen career paths and refine your skills in all dance genres.

Assess­ments will be con­duct­ed through real-life expe­ri­ences with pro­fes­sion­al chore­o­g­ra­phers and employ­ers, as well as per­for­mances, work­shops, mixed media port­fo­lios, pre­sen­ta­tions and reflec­tive writ­ing. Your tech­nique and back­ground knowl­edge of each dance style will be rig­or­ous­ly exam­ined by your teach­ers and togeth­er you will refine your skills and knowl­edge in com­mer­cial, bal­let, tap, musi­cal the­atre, jazz, urban, con­tem­po­rary, lyri­cal, cabaret, point work and singing.
