Open auditions for new dance degree

WESSEX Academy of Performing Arts at Weston College are offering a brand new Foundation Degree in Professional and Commercial Dance in partnership with Bath Spa University.

The course, subject to final approval, is due to start in September and will focus on developing technical dance and choreography ability, alongside the entrepreneurial and business skills required to pursue a professional career in dance.

An open audition will be held, on Monday 13th June between 5-7.15pm at the College’s Knightstone Campus. There will also be a chance to discover more about the course and the opportunity to take part in a dance workshop.

The audition, which is free to attend, is to assess technical dance ability in a range of styles and performance skills. To be offered a place on the course, students will need to have achieved a minimum of MMP/CDD or equivalent from a relevant Level 3 qualification e.g. the BTEC Extended Diploma in Performing Arts or A Level Dance.  

Sylvia Lane, Curriculum Coordinator, said: “Come along and find out more about this exciting new course which is unique to the South West.

“A range of styles will be explored, including hip-hop, Latin American, ballroom, jazz, ballet and tap.”
