Course details

The performing arts industry is a steadily growing sector which is demanding people trained in the various areas. Through this programme of studies learners become familiar with fundamental principles and skills related to contemporary performing arts practice.

The first year of this course focuses on elemental principles related to music, theatre, dance, management, production, design and technical aspects of the performing arts in preparation for more independent and focused study the following year when learners choose to develop particular study-areas of performance (acting, dance and/or music), design (costume, props and/or set), technical aspects (light and/or sound) and management further. This allows them to gear up for progression to specific undergraduate programmes, leading to the formation of performing arts professionals.
