The Dance Academy is housed within the £5m Digital and Creative building at Preston’s College. There are a range of course options available with a focus on either performance, teaching or a combination of both.
Students have the opportunity to take vocational examinations with the ISTD and all units of the Diploma in Dance Instruction and the Diploma in Dance Education are available to study. There is also the opportunity to study maths and English if you do not have a GCSE grade C or above.
Housed within a Further Education college the Dance Academy benefits from a whole host of resources and support services that add to the learning experience and ensure the best chance of a successful career. You will have access to agencies, funding for your course and enrichment activities such as our Annual Trip to New York, Choreography competition and numerous shows and events to perform in.
Students are given one to one advice as they progress from year to year and there is the opportunity to complete additional qualifications and training alongside the main programme of study. Second and third year students have the opportunity to work with numerous external agencies in preparation for auditioning for work.
As an enterprising college, employment and your success is at the heart of everything we do.
