Dance Curriculum Intent

We are excited to be able to offer a brand new dance course which we feel will enable our learners to develop a range of skills and knowledge in Dance.

The Pearson BTEC Level 1/Level 2 Tech Award in Performing Arts; Dance is for learners who want to acquire technical knowledge and technical skills through vocational contexts by dance as part of their Key Stage 4 learning.

The qualification recognises the value of learning skills, knowledge and vocational attributes to complement GCSEs. The qualification will broaden the learners experience and understanding of the varied progression options available to them.

The Award gives learners the opportunity to develop sector-specific knowledge and skills in a practical learning environment. The main focus is on four areas of equal importance, which cover the:

  • development of key skills that prove your aptitude in Performing Arts such as reproducing repertoire or responding to stimuli
  • process that underpins effective ways of working in the Performing Arts, such as development of ideas, rehearsal and performance
  • attitudes that are considered most important in the Performing Arts, including personal management and communication
  • knowledge that underpins effective use of skills, process and attitudes in the sector such as roles, responsibilities, performance disciplines and styles.
