ABOUT THE COURSE
Do you have a keen interest in acting, musical theatre, drama, improvisation, directing or scriptwriting?
We offer two specialist performing arts pathways that can be studied as:
– Single pathway (dance and drama – you can specialise in year 2)
– Double pathway (dance and drama – you can specialise in year 2)
– Triple pathway (dance, drama and musical theatre)
The drama pathway covers all aspects of actor training. You will study a range of acting techniques, from Stanislavski and Brecht, to Demidov, as well as classical and contemporary theatre practices. You will have the opportunity to become fully involved in the process of performance, from directing and writing, to critical evaluation.
You will collate a variety of project-based evidence, which will vary from performances in acting, dance and music, to scriptwriting, presentations, group discussions, essays/reports and much more. Please note that the drama pathway contains some compulsory units in dance.
WHAT WE ADD
You will learn in our fully equipped dance and drama studios. A TV studio, large performance space and soundproof music practice booths are also available to you for both rehearsal and performance. You will also be able to take part in a range of performance workshops with visiting industry specialists, as part of our Plus More programme. We also host 10 shows a year across our music and performing arts courses, where you will have the chance to showcase your talents.
