A level danceWatch
I want to take dance as one of my A-level choices but I'm not currently doing it at GCSE. I have only recently started dancing (a year and a half ago) and I love dancing. will I still be able to take it?
Your school may ask you to do a mini audition if the dance department haven't really seen you dance yet, just to see if your skills will be up to A Level standard. The subject is split in two - 50% theory and 50% practical. So you must ensure you are also willing to learn about a variety of dance works in depth and also learn the history of dance - but your teachers will guide you as much as possible so don't panic if you're thinking there's a lot to learn.
If you're wanting to pursue dance as a career after your A Levels then taking this subject will put you in the right direction and allow to acknowledge whether dance is your thing or not - you learn how to choreograph, analyse dance works and also gain an extensive knowledge of dance technique and what makes a good dancer. Earning a dance qualification will boost you in the dance industry and make you more available to dance schools (if you wish to audition at other places after your study).
