This course is for anyone who is interested in studying dance in depth through the creation and performance of choreography, and the analysis of dance repertoire. You do not have to pursue a career in dance to take this course, and the skill-set gained from taking the role of both a choreographer and performer in a practical setting provide a range of favourable skills for both employment and university. This course is assessed predominantly through internally assessed coursework, and assessment has a larger focus on practical work and covers a wider range of dance styles compared to the A Level. 

You do not need to have studied BTEC or GCSE Dance before, but having prior practical experience is essential. Practical assessments will be in a wide variety of styles, but as long as you’re enthusiastic and willing to learn, it doesn’t matter if you haven’t studied a specific style before. Students are required to already have competent technique in dance on admission, and all applicants should attend Wyke start practical audition workshops in order to be accepted on the course.
