Unit 1 Skills development, knowledge and understanding

This unit is an opportunity to learn basic skills in Dance and Drama.  In drama classes students devise short scenes and develop language, non-verbal communication and characterisation. Students develop technical dance skills through choreography workshops and technique classes.

Unit 2 Showcase Performance

This is a chance for you to perform to an audience. Students will create a performance in response to a brief and will have to consider the target audience, how to select work for the showcase and a rehearsal programme. You may choose to specialise in a specific area for this unit such as stage management, lighting, dance or drama.
