BTEC Dance is a diverse, vibrant and exciting course which allows students to explore a range of styles and genres of dance including commercial, contemporary and jazz.
This qualification offers an engaging programme to support learners who want to pursue a career in dance. This size of qualification allows learners to study related and complementary qualifications alongside it, without duplication of content. It can prepare learners for a range of Apprenticeships in performance-related areas. When taken alongside further Level 3 qualifications, it supports access to a range of higher education courses in the performing arts sector.
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.
How the course is delivered?
Both the practical and written elements of the course are 100% coursework assessed.
Where can this course take me?
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 offer 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.
