So I live in London and am 15. This means that it's gotten to the time that I have to decide what to do once I leave year 11. I have a burning passion for dance and know that I am very good at it and would like to pursue it as a career. Therefore I would like to do a Dance BTEC course at a college. This will enable me to get as much possible knowledge on dance, and the most training hours, which will enable me to become a better dancer. However my sister (she makes all the important decisions if you wondering why I'm not mention mum and dad) thinks that I should do an A Level Dance. This is because the dance field is very competitive and she is worried that I will not make it as a successful dancer, so she wants me to do an A Level, so that I have a range of subjects which will mean that I have more directions I can go to if dance doesn't work out for me. She is very keen on this and will not permit me to do a BTEC Dance like I wish for. I don't want to do an A Level, because I don't see the point in picking other subjects if I am going in the dance pathway, it will just waste my time, and take up energy and effort that I can be putting towards Dance. Also picking a BTEC Dance will allow me to become better than I would be with A Level, as it is a lot more training hours and just overall a lot more in depth than an A Level will cover. If you guys have any tips on how I could persuade my sister to let me do Dance BTEC, please help me out as soon as you can, as it's coming near the time where I have to be doing my applications. Thank you!
Hi everyone My DD attends normal school at the moment and takes dance after school - she’s year 10 at the moment. She’s very keen to attend a vocational school for sixth form - but me and DH have agreed that A Levels still have happen! We’ve all agreed that Tring Park is probably the best option (although we’re open to others) and I was hoping people could share their experiences of life at tring, specifically the environment and the 6th form dance course. Thanks!
Hi all, long time no speak! Thought I'd just let you all know that I'm now studying at Dancebox College who offer a diploma in dance alongside a Level 3 BTEC qualification which is equivalent to 3 A Levels. It is a fully funded course for those aged 16-18 and runs for two years as a sixth form alternative. We study ballet every day, jazz four times a week, contemporary twice, commercial twice, tap once and a theory lesson every day, as well as rehearsals for performances. The faculty is amazing with so much experience, and the facilities have just been updated into a much larger building which is going to be incredible when it's finished. There is an open day in a few weeks if anyone is interested, the college is located in Central Milton Keynes. More info: https://www.danceboxcollege.co.uk/ Any questions fire away! Fyi, I'm 19 and have already done a levels, so I had to pay for the course.
