BTEC Performing Arts
Pearson BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Performing Arts
Welcome to the BTEC Diploma in Performing Arts at Ivybridge Community College- an exceptional course with outstanding results.
The course is now in its ninth year at the college and continues to provide teaching and learning to the highest standard, delivered by our team of specialist staff (musical theatre, dance, acting, Production Arts). Many of our past students have successfully auditioned for renowned performing arts colleges, such as East 15 Acting School, Urdang Academy, Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and Arts Educational School.
This course is much more practical in nature than A Levels and you should expect to perform to an audience regularly at a consistently high standard. The course requires a great deal of focus, discipline and professionalism and expectations are high.
Our students play major roles in the college’s annual Performing Arts Show and also use the skills they have developed during the course to successfully audition for leading roles in our annual whole college production; past productions include Les Miserables, Oliver!, Into the Woods, The Sound of Music and Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat.
BTEC students also perform in their own annual Variety show style production. Students are challenged to develop their own material, rehearsal schedule and perform to the highest possible standard. Our talented students are also ‘commissioned’ to represent the college in prestigious events, such as the annual Awards Ceremony.
If you wish for the opportunity to develop your performing skills through the expert tuition of our specialist team, to gain a unique insight into working as a ‘professional’ performance company member within the Performing Arts industry, as well produce a variety of exciting and memorable performances, then this is the course for you.
