Dance students on tour

Performing arts students from Dudley CollegePerforming arts students from Dudley College will be embarking on a tour of local secondary schools in the region to offer the student's vocational training of the highest standard, in addition to preparing them for the world of work.

The first production "Behind Closed Doors - The Tour" will consist of BTEC Extended Diploma Dance students presenting workshops and performances.

This will enable the students to learn how to adapt to a variety of audiences, along with the opportunity to share their experiences and give the pupils an insight into a typical college day in the life of a dance student.

Hannah Davies Dance tutor at Dudley College said, "This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to show the standard of work we produce here at Dudley College.  For them to experience a different audience everyday will give them an insight into what it's like in a real theatre situation, along with building their confidence and self-esteem."

The Dance BTEC extended diploma course gives advanced training in a range of dance related areas.  Students study a variety of dance movements including Contemporary, Classic ballet, Jazz dance, Body maintenance and choreography.
