What our students are saying

I’ve enjoyed dance because I like training to be a dancer and to get more experience in dance to help me with my future endeavours and with other subjects, I like learning all the things I’ve learnt which has also enabled me to meet a variety of new friends. College life has been really great. Participating in College’s dance shows has also been a massive achievement due to the shear intensity and great choreography.

Matthew, Dance A Level

I had no previous dance experience and the course welcomed students who were new to dance. Learning to dance in the styles of jazz, ballet and contemporary has been incredibly enjoyable and having the opportunities to choreograph our own pieces means we are able to implement what we have learnt in our own way. My main achievements have been discovering dance as a possible career path and being lucky enough to take part in Matthew Bourne’s production of the ‘Lord of the Flies’.
