Sixth Form Dance Course
Our Full-time Dance course has been designed by figures at the forefront of dance training in the UK. Providing students with intensive technical training with outstanding teachers and industry professionals.
Equivalent to 3 A-Levels and with an internationally recognised awarding body, whether your passion is Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip hop or Commercial – the Arts1 Dance course will prepare you for your next step into a career in performance.
Dance training at Arts1 is led by the Head of Dance - Leanne Hughes. Our experienced and qualified staff team work to develop our students into highly skilled performers with a solid technical foundation. Arts1 is the leading provider of post-16 training in the region and our courses are taught by a team of incredible coaches and industry experts. The Dance course at Arts1 is unlike a standard BTEC taught in a school or college setting, it has several unique features including intensive contact hours and specialist delivery that give our students the edge in performance.
Each week we invite an industry figure to lead a workshop with the students, providing a real life insight into the professional world.
