Brooksby Melton College has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
The course is centred on producing creative and high quality performance work in a number of contexts that relate to the performing arts industry. During the first year of the course you will receive an initial grounding in the core techniques of acting, dance and singing. You can then select pathways to specialise in advanced approaches to drama and acting or dance performance (or opt for a mixture of modules in both) throughout your three years of study.
A range of performance styles and significant practitioners in contemporary and modern performance will be explored in both theory and practice, providing students with a wealth of ideas and approaches to draw upon in the creation and staging of their own work. Students will also learn about performing for the camera using industry standard equipment and technology (including our specialist green screen studio).
