This is an exciting course
available at Wyke, equivalent in size to one A Level.
This qualification offers an engaging
programme covering a variety of dance styles with a heavy proportion of coursework-based assessments. Most of the assessments will be practical based, including involvement in our annual show production.
You will take a variety of roles including
both a performer and choreographer.
You will also have to keep logbooks and
evaluate reviews to track your progress and development. This course is for anyone interested in studying dance.
You do not have to be pursuing a career
in dance to take this course, nor have studied GCSE or BTEC Dance before, but having prior practical experience is essential. All applicants should attend the Wyke Start practical audition workshops in order to be accepted on the course.
This qualification offers a practical approach where you will be challenged to develop your technical skills and performance ability. You will also gain the knowledge required to choreograph both solo and group pieces. The theory aspect of the course focuses on physiology of the body linked with the dancer in action.
Wyke also offers courses in A Level Dance and BTEC Performing Arts. These courses can be taken separately or alongside BTEC Dance to give a full time Dance/ Performing Arts Programme for those wishing to go into the industry.
The qualification provides an excellent foundation for study at a higher level and for progression into many careers such as Dancing, Choreographing, Teaching and Fitness Instructing to name a few.
Our Dance department at Wyke also offers extensive extra-curricular opportunities including the chance to compete nationally, guest lectures and links to training providers within the industry including the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
