Tring - this will vary depending on how many A'levels a student takes. Upper years have vocational lessons in the afternoon, so about 5 hours of dancing split into ballet, jazz, contemporary, pdd, virtuosity, solos, point work, Pilates. They get 3 contemporary lessons a week, 3 jazz lessons a week and one Pilates. The rest is ballet in some form. A'levels are taken in the morning, however, a program of dance classes also runs so that when no academic studies are going on they can attend morning classes. Dance students can take 0, 1, 2 or 3 A'levels its up to them. Some feel they need more studio time and will opt to do fewer A'levels so they can do more dance. Morning classes are, ballet, jazz contemporary, Pilates, weights, rehab clinics. All dance student do their diploma studies too.
