About this course

AS Dance is a one-year course and should be taken alongside two or three other A Level subjects and the Welsh Baccalaureate. It may be possible to take this course as a part-time student.

The study of dance enables students to develop socially whilst promoting creativity, fitness and well-being.  As students become performers, they’ll also develop their confidence, self-esteem and team working skills.  

This course equips students with the necessary skills and experience to study dance further, or embark on an exciting career in the arts.

What our students say

I came to the College as I wanted to travel and become more independent – it’s so modern and looks amazing. When I saw the library I was sold. Honestly the library was my main pull, there are so many books I loved it.
Someone came in to speak to us about the Sutton Trust, which gives students a taste of life at American universities. I applied - it was really competitive but I got in. We went to a different state every day, and we went to different colleges including Princeton and Harvard. I also had a week at Warwick Uni and a week at Nottingham Uni. It was so good – I just loved it.
You have a lot of support at the College, especially from the Careers and Ideas team. I think there are a lot more opportunities here as it is such a big college with so many resources.
