Technical training, creative choreographic classes and a variety of public performance opportunities are combined with an analysis of significant periods of dance history and dance works to develop an appreciation of the art of dance. The emphasis of this A level course is shared equally between practical, creative choreographic and performance work AND a theoretical analysis of key areas of dance history.
