The HND top-up in Performing Arts (Dance) builds on previous experience and enables dancers to achieve a qualification at level 5, and to progress their technical and performance skills in essential studio practice of contemporary techniques, jazz dance and commercial dance. To progress their skills as choreographers, facilitators and future dance professionals, students will lead, manage and create work for the department’s own EnHaNCeD Undergraduate Performance Company, with Level 4 students working as the ensemble company, in addition to performing themselves. Students will initiate projects, liaise with external agencies and deliver dance performance for a public audience in the College’s own theatre and for local and national dance events and festivals. Students will gain essential academic knowledge of research in theory and practice methodologies appropriate for those wishing to complete post graduate study. They will also have an opportunity to develop their workshop leadership and teaching skills in a variety of community and schools settings, under the mentorship of experienced tutors.
