Why choose Performance Studies?

Performance Studies is an exciting and dynamic exploration of the three art forms of music, dance and drama. This unique, multi-disciplinary course develops qualities of imagination, sensitivity, artistic knowledge and understanding. It is essential for those who wish to go on to specialist training and ideal for those with performance flair who wish to broaden their curriculum. You will study the work of superb choreographers, composers and playwrights, analyse the most significant styles and genres of the last century, and develop your own skills as a creator of cross-arts, inter-disciplinary work. Each year our students see the best professional work around and we bring in top professionals to run workshops. You will develop your practical performance skills, integrating the art forms in fresh, original and inventive ways, guided by our highly experienced team of experts. This course suits students who are self-motivated, enjoy group work and have a profound desire to challenge themselves on both a practical and theoretical level.

"Performing arts is my favourite subject - the resources and support here are so brilliant. I've really enjoyed my two years here and have seen myself and my friends grow in leaps and bounds as performers. I will be very, very, very sad to go - thank you."
