The UAL Level 2 Award/Diploma in Performing and Production Arts (Musical Theatre Pathway) is a course designed to develop students' potential for working in the musical theatre profession and prepare them for future qualifications.
During this fast paced, practical one-year course, students will cover a wide range of performance skills, contextual activities related to dance and will also be given the opportunity to be involved in public performances. The method of learning is a mixture of both tutor led and practical sessions.
Those enrolled on the course will study the three core disciplines of musical theatre: acting, singing and dance. For their acting lessons, students will focus on a range of skills, techniques and practitioners. For their dance lessons, students will study ballet, jazz and tap, along with other dance techniques such as contemporary, street dance and choreographic skills. There is also a strong focus for singing, which will include lessons in vocal technique, choral repertoire, acting through song and applying technique to performance.
The course is taught by subject specialists, and you will be working both independently and in small groups, utilising our state of the art facilities. There may also be opportunities for students to attend external performances or workshops with industry professionals.
In some sessions, skills development or projects, you may work alongside other Performing Arts L2 & L3 students. This reflects industry practice and behaviours.
