SENIOR PROFESSIONAL VOCATIONAL COURSE
is specifically for young people seeking a professional career in dance and the performing arts, who want to commit to a full dance training. To gain entry into the finest vocational dance academies post 16/18, extraordinarily high standards are expected. This course is designed to meet those standards.
The DANSACADEMY is unique, however, in offering a training programme without having to fund a private education alongside. Our carefully designed curriculum offers up to 17 hours per week of full vocational dance training, thereby providing an equivalent training to that of a full time dance/ stage school (which also has to provide a school education) at a fraction of the cost. The DANSACADEMY has the huge advantage of allowing pupils to remain in their current school environment, retaining their full education opportunities and facilities that your local school can offer and maintaining the full selection of educational subjects. The structure of the course also allows students to stay at home, thereby hugely reducing the costs to parents and making a full training programme for serious young dancers possible for more families.
The DANSACADEMY will benefit all young people aged 12 to 18 considering a career in the performing arts and recognises the huge diversification of skills required of modern professional performers. Genres include Ballet, Modern, Tap, Contemporary, Jazz, Repertoire, Historical Dance, Drama, Musical Theatre and Singing (optional extra). This approach to dance training will keep students on par with children studying at full time dance/stage schools from the age of 11, who until now, have had an advantage over part time establishments due to sheer number of hours they can devote to dance classes.
Dance training requires dedication, a serious approach and skilled and experiences tuition. As well as their dedication to this programme, teachers at the DANSACADEMY work widely in the profession and teach in other renowned vocational academies. They are well versed in the demands of the profession and have had thorough knowledge of training students to the required standard.
Every student will receive an assessment at the end of each year and report detailing their progress and their ongoing suitability for the course. Each student receives audition support and ongoing nutritional advice to sustain the rigours of a dance training and to remain a healthy dancer.
As a recognition of the trainingavailable at the DANSACADEMY, The Moscow City Ballet Company have offered suitable students the opportunity to audition for a chance to perform with the company on their UK tour.
