Dance (2230)

This is our outgoing specification (last exams 2017).
For our new specifications see:

AS Dance (7236)

A-level Dance (7237)

A-level Dance provides students with the opportunity to gain experience of performance and choreography and to develop critical thinking about Dance.

This four-unit specification requires students to:

  • develop understanding and knowledge as well as critical skills for the analysis of choreography and performance within their own work and in professional repertoire
  • gain experience of choreography and performance through practice
  • gain in-depth knowledge of specific study areas and professional works.

The practical elements of the course amount to 55% of the full qualification.  

This course is particularly suitable for students who have studied GCSE Dance and wish to study Dance at a higher level. The content allows students to study a subject which can be extended through higher education and promotes a healthy lifestyle through an awareness of the importance of exercise and training.
