What is the course structure?

There are four units, three of which are predetermined, the final one will be selected for study during the second year.


Unit 1: Investigating Practitioners

You will study, explore and perform the works of famous practitioners from the Performing Arts, before writing a final essay on your findings.


Unit 2: Developing Skills and Techniques for Live Performance

Using your specialism, you will develop a greater understanding of this area of performing arts through workshops, rehearsals and performances.


Unit 3: Group Workshop Performance

 

Over a 4 week window you will be given a stimulus and must create a 10 minute performance piece as a group in response to this. You will document the process through log-books and rehearsals before a final performance.

What will I study?​

You will be expected to study the three disciplines of Music, Dance & Drama and take part in all aspects of our school productions. These include the final performances but also regular attendance at all rehearsals.


Units covered are:

 

  • Singing Skills for Actors & Dancers

  • The Principles of Acting

  • Musical Theatre Performance

  • Performing to an Audience

  • Jazz Dance

  • Dance Appreciation

How is the course assessed?

You will receive regular interim assessments, but your final grades will be awarded on your attendance at rehearsals, keeping and up-to-date rehearsal log/diary and your final 'live' performance in front of an audience at one of our shows.
