Event: GCSE & BTEC Dance

Anglesey

Based at our Conway Centres: Anglesey we have an excellent range of facilities for both the Performing and Visual Arts. We offer high quality education aimed at encouraging creativity, providing opportunity & raising attainment.

The Key Stage 4 weekend is an intensive and exciting 3-day course incorporating relevant sessions in choreography and technique. The weekend aims to give students an awareness of how they need to perform for their relevant assessments and also to inspire them to achieve.

Both our fully qualified teaching staff and our associate artists have a significant breadth of specialist experience which allows them to engage students and inspire them to achieve to the best of their ability. Our event allows for pupils to network and meet new like-minded pupils which can increase future development as well as professional development for staff.
