The Dance: Contemporary and Commercial course pathway at CAPA College provides students with intensive, professional dance training developing their skill set, creative approach and awareness of Dance and the Arts. In Year 1 students will study a broad and balanced Dance curriculum developing skills and experience in a range of genres. In Year 2 students will be able to specialise their Dance focus to further hone their skills and level of expertise and interest.
Students will also gain experience and appreciation of other complementary art forms and will work collaboratively with students on CAPA College’s other course pathways. Most students will progress to Dance based higher education courses and careers in the Dance sector. However students will also have the versatility and transferable skills to diversify into other areas of the Creative Arts sector.
CAPA College provides extensive directed studio time for students led by an outstanding team of resident specialist teachers and choreographers focusing on technical and creative development. This is complemented by regular masterclasses and residencies by visiting artists and companies. Through these opportunities, students experience different artistic approaches, styles and methods. Training ultimately leads to students gaining extensive performance experience in a range of venues giving students the opportunity to learn how to adapt to different spaces and audiences.
