BTEC Dance Year 10 & 11

Year 10 BTEC Dance Course Modules

  • Module 1: Exploring the Performing Arts

    Students examine live and recorded performances to develop their understanding of practitioners’ work. They will gain a practical appreciation of different pieces of dance looking at how they may respond to or treat a particular theme or issue, how they use a pre-existing style and how they communicate ideas to an audience.

    Students examine the roles and responsibilities and skills of practitioners including choreographers, costume designers and performers, understanding how they contribute to a performance. Practically, students will explore and participate in workshops and classes to develop their knowledge and understanding of the interrelationships between process, techniques and and approaches that contribute to professional repertoire.


  • Module 2: Developing skills and techniques in the Performing Arts

    Students will work as professional dancers and participate in workshops and classes to develop their performance and interpretive skills and techniques. They will have the opportunity to work from existing repertoire, applying relevant skills and techniques to reproduce performance elements of the work. They will perform to a range of audiences during the process.

    Developing these performance skills and techniques will enable students to consider their enjoyment of performing art, helping them to make informed decisions about what they study in the future.

  • Module 3: Responding to a Brief

    This externally assessed module builds on knowledge, understanding and skills acquired and developed in modules 1 and 2. Students work as a group to apply their skills creatively to devise a workshop performance for a selected audience. Students are given a brief, set by the exam board and are required to capture their ideas on planning, development and effectiveness of the production process in a written log and evaluation report.

    The group performance may involve some solo or small group work or it may be an ensemble piece.
