This course consists of both written and practical assessments so it is important that you are enthusiastic and dedicated to all parts of the course. It will be physically demanding so it is essential that you are comfortable being active and are happy to maintain a reasonable level of fitness. Previous dance experience is preferable but not entirely essential if you have developed good coordination through other sporting activities. Ideally you should be creative and experimental as you will be required to choreograph from a stimulus (e.g. an image, piece of music). Other skills that will be useful are the ability to communicate, listen and work well as part of a team. You need to have focus and be willing to work hard. It is essential that you are organised and can manage your time so that you can keep to deadlines.
