(SCQF Level 8) 2 year HND
Jazzartuk’s unique approach to Professional Dance training has produced the most successful graduates in the land.
To Date 100% of Jazzartuk’s Dance Graduates have gone directly onto prestigious contracts both nationally and internationally.
In today’s performance industry, it is no longer sufficient to only be a dancer. Dancers are now required to have high technical & performance skills in all techniques, plus the ability to sing & act to a professional standard to portray the many characteristics necessary in modern productions, cabaret, musical theatre, pantomime, pop videos & television.
Today’s industry sees performers such as Darcy Bussell now seen not only dancing to prima ballerina standard but singing alongside John Barrowman & Michael Ball in concert tours.
The aim of all Jazzartuk courses is to produce confident, professional young performers & dance teachers of the future.
Studying RAD ballet to Advanced 2 level - working regularly with performers from ‘So you think you can Dance’ - being taught by tutors who are current in the industry and having the basis of Director Sheridan Nicol’s world renowned Jazzart Technique ensures a strong technical base from which to develop and flourish.
