We've worked with dance teachers and higher education providers to create a qualification that will appeal to students of all abilities, and equip them with a wide range of skills and knowledge.
Our AS and A-level Dance specifications reflect both historical and current dance practices, making them more relevant, and inspiring a lifelong passion and appreciation for dance. They also offer clear, logical progression from GCSE.
Both AS and A-level provide strong standalone qualifications that are designed to be co-teachable. This gives you and your students valuable choice.
Our new qualification offers your students the opportunity to place dance within a historical and cultural context, encouraging them to reflect upon their own practical work within the context of professional practice. It promotes the academic and transferable skills valued by Higher Education and employers.
