What will I do?

You will explore all three areas of the performing arts; dance, acting and musical theatre. You could be choreographing for a production one week and preparing to perform a powerful monologue the next. . The performance industry is one that relies very heavily on teamwork so you have to be able to work very closely with the rest of your class. No show, film or production are created by just one person. You will learn about the ins and outs of the performance and entertainment industry through live briefs, work experience, full-scale performances and all the preparation that comes with it, as well as other enrichment opportunities.

Is it for me?

Performing Arts doesn’t quite fit the usual mould when it comes to education or career progression as there are a huge variety of paths you can go down which will take you to different places. Upon completion of your course, you could choose to apply to drama schools studying your specialism, you could head to university, or head straight out into the industry with auditions or junior positions such as a stagehand. 

If you are aiming towards studying at Level 3, you will need at least four GCSEs at minimum grade 4/C, including English and Maths. However, these requirements and any others specific to the course will be discussed at interview.
