Over the 14 weeks you will work in our performance studios to develop contemporary and modern dance technique, improve fitness levels, enjoy working on dance phrases and develop two performance pieces to present at the end of the course. You will get the chance to work on movement material developed by practitioners, learning about their techniques and how to execute the movement safely.

You will also have the opportunity to explore choreographic skills, being able to apply your new found skills into the development of some creative performance work. You will be working towards the creation and delivery of two performance pieces to friends and family at the end of the 14 weeks and will complete two units during this course, gaining a Level 2 Award in Performing Arts with UAL.
