GRAHAM SCHOOL IS PART OF

Dance

BTEC TECHNICAL AWARD FOR PERFORMING ARTS: DANCE

40% External Assignment, 60% Internal Assignment Led by: Miss G Noble

Exam Board:

Edexcel

What will I be studying?

The course is made up of three components:

 1 :Exploring the Performing Arts.

 2 :Developing Skills & Techniques in Performing Arts.

 3 :Performing to a Brief.

The three-block structure, explore, develop and apply, has been developed to allow students to build on and embed their knowledge.

This allows them to grow in confidence and then put into practice what they have learned. There are expectations that:

Students will bring kit to change into every lesson.

Students will perform in front of their class and larger audiences.

Assessments will be filmed.

Students will need determination to improve – some content is difficult at the beginning.

Students will give and receive feedback.

For all components written coursework is required.

What can I do afterwards?

The BTEC Technical Award is a practical introduction to life and work in Performing Arts, so you can develop your understanding of the sector and see whether it’s an industry you would like to be in. It gives students a great starting point for academic or vocational study post-16, as well as preparing them for future employment.

“Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion”
