Skills and progression: A-level Dance is a dynamic qualification which encourages students to develop their creative and intellectual capacity, alongside transferable skills such as team working, communication and problem solving. All of these are sought after skills by higher education and employers and will help them stand out in the workplace whatever their choice of career.
Choreography: Students must learn how to create an original piece of choreography, in response to an externally set task.
Performance: Students must develop and apply the knowledge, understanding and skills required to perform as a soloist in the style of a practitioner and how to perform as part of a quartet.
Critical engagement: The areas of study and set works provide an appropriate focus for students to critically engage with dance and understand the interrelationship between the creation, presentation and viewing/appreciation of dance.
