Subject and Exam Board: Dance BTEC Pearson
Minimum Entry Requirement: P+
Head of Subject: Miss C Kay/Ms P Judge
Course Description
At KS5 we continue to work with BTEC to provide a clear progression. This qualification offers an
engaging programme to support learners who want to pursue a career in dance. This size of
qualification allows learners to study related and complementary qualifications alongside it,
without duplication of content. It can prepare learners for a range of Apprenticeships in
performance-related areas. When taken alongside further Level 3 qualifications, it supports access
to a range of higher education courses in the performing arts sector. The BTEC Level 3 Extended
Certificate in Performing Arts – Dance is the equivalent of a full A Level, providing students with
the same UCAS points. Here, our students’ study four units over the course of two years, analysing
professional practitioners and their repertoire, developing their practical dance skills and
technique in Jazz, Ballet and Contemporary Dance as well as refining those performance skills our
students have been developing since Year 9. Alongside this they will learn about the history of
dance as well as bringing together all the skills learnt to choreograph a final group piece lasting 20
minutes, in response to a set theme chosen by the exam board.
What you will learn in Year 12 What you will learn in Year 13
Unit 1- Investigating Practitioners Work
Unit 2- Developing Skills and Techniques for
Live Performance
Unit 13- Choreography for Live Performance
Unit 1: Investigating Practitioners’ Work
Understanding the contextual factors that have
influenced and informed the work of
performing arts practitioners has an important
role in developing your own professional
practice and understanding of features, such as
response to a theme, performance styles, genre
and purpose. A personal evaluation of the work
is important; judgements need to be based on
effective research and secure critical analysis.
In this unit, you will develop skills that allow
you to investigate the work of influential
performing arts practitioners. You will identify
the contextual factors that influence their work
and critically analyse key information, such as
creative intentions, performance, production
and repertoire in order to develop and
communicate independent judgements. To
complete the assessment tasks within this unit,
you will need to draw on your learning from
across your programme.
Unit 3- Group Performance Workshop
Unit 4- Performing Arts in the Community
Unit 10- Jazz Dance Technique
Unit 3: Group Performance Workshop
In this unit, you will learn how to respond to a
given stimulus as part of a group, using
research, discussion and practical exploration
to develop performance material and later
present an informal presentation of the work to
an invited audience. As a member of a team,
you will contribute to the creative development
and rehearsal process, shaping and refining the
work and applying performance and teamwork
skills. You will share responsibility for creative
decisions regarding the nature and direction of
the intended performance, and your individual
contribution will reflect your own skills through
the group’s interests and ideas. The workshop
performance will be an opportunity to try out
the work before an audience to invite
discussion and evaluation of its potential. You
will reflect on the development process,
considering the success and potential of the
work for further development, as well as
evaluating your own contribution to the
process and the product. To complete the
assessment tasks within this unit, you will need
Unit 2: Developing Skills and Techniques for
Live Performance
You will participate in regular workshops,
classes and exercises where you will acquire,
practise and develop the necessary technical,
practical and interpretative performance skills
to help you succeed when performing live to an
audience. You will consider the nature, skills
and attributes of the performer’s role in your
chosen discipline. You will work with existing
performance works, analysing and interpreting
the material in order to understand and apply
the relevant skills and techniques appropriate
to the style. In practical classes you will
demonstrate the discipline, focus and
commitment the role of the performer
requires. Ongoing review and evaluation will
allow you to monitor your progress and set
targets for the development of your
performance skills.
Unit 13: Choreography for Live Performance
This unit provides a focus towards our yearly
dance show where students are given the task
to create routines that are able to focus on our
yearly changing theme. The students will be
asked to assist with making routines that are of
a high quality for a paying audience.
to draw on your learning from across your
programme.
Unit 10: Jazz Dance Technique
Jazz dance is a popular and diverse dance form
that is used in a variety of performances. Often
associated with cabaret and musical theatre, its
influence has broadened out into areas such as
flash mobs, music videos and concerts. The
skills that you will develop in this unit can make
you a dancer who can work in a broad range of
jazz contexts. In this unit, you will develop skills
and techniques that will enable you to
understand the key technical and stylistic
features of jazz dance through participating in
technique classes, rehearsals and performance
work. By learning and watching different styles
of jazz dance, you will develop an
understanding of the diversity of this dance
form and the practitioners who have influenced
the development of the style. You will reflect
on your progress as you develop skills and
techniques, setting targets and reviewing your
progress.
Unit 4: Performing Arts in the Community
This unit is focusing on considering what type
of impact a dancer or a dance practitioner can
have on the wider community. This unit offers

Dance KS5 Breakdown

  • 1. Subject and Exam Board: Dance BTEC Pearson Minimum Entry Requirement: P+ Head of Subject: Miss C Kay/Ms P Judge Course Description At KS5 we continue to work with BTEC to provide a clear progression. This qualification offers an engaging programme to support learners who want to pursue a career in dance. This size of qualification allows learners to study related and complementary qualifications alongside it, without duplication of content. It can prepare learners for a range of Apprenticeships in performance-related areas. When taken alongside further Level 3 qualifications, it supports access to a range of higher education courses in the performing arts sector. The BTEC Level 3 Extended Certificate in Performing Arts – Dance is the equivalent of a full A Level, providing students with the same UCAS points. Here, our students’ study four units over the course of two years, analysing professional practitioners and their repertoire, developing their practical dance skills and technique in Jazz, Ballet and Contemporary Dance as well as refining those performance skills our students have been developing since Year 9. Alongside this they will learn about the history of dance as well as bringing together all the skills learnt to choreograph a final group piece lasting 20 minutes, in response to a set theme chosen by the exam board. What you will learn in Year 12 What you will learn in Year 13 Unit 1- Investigating Practitioners Work Unit 2- Developing Skills and Techniques for Live Performance Unit 13- Choreography for Live Performance Unit 1: Investigating Practitioners’ Work Understanding the contextual factors that have influenced and informed the work of performing arts practitioners has an important role in developing your own professional practice and understanding of features, such as response to a theme, performance styles, genre and purpose. A personal evaluation of the work is important; judgements need to be based on effective research and secure critical analysis. In this unit, you will develop skills that allow you to investigate the work of influential performing arts practitioners. You will identify the contextual factors that influence their work and critically analyse key information, such as creative intentions, performance, production and repertoire in order to develop and communicate independent judgements. To complete the assessment tasks within this unit, you will need to draw on your learning from across your programme. Unit 3- Group Performance Workshop Unit 4- Performing Arts in the Community Unit 10- Jazz Dance Technique Unit 3: Group Performance Workshop In this unit, you will learn how to respond to a given stimulus as part of a group, using research, discussion and practical exploration to develop performance material and later present an informal presentation of the work to an invited audience. As a member of a team, you will contribute to the creative development and rehearsal process, shaping and refining the work and applying performance and teamwork skills. You will share responsibility for creative decisions regarding the nature and direction of the intended performance, and your individual contribution will reflect your own skills through the group’s interests and ideas. The workshop performance will be an opportunity to try out the work before an audience to invite discussion and evaluation of its potential. You will reflect on the development process, considering the success and potential of the work for further development, as well as evaluating your own contribution to the process and the product. To complete the assessment tasks within this unit, you will need
  • 2. Unit 2: Developing Skills and Techniques for Live Performance You will participate in regular workshops, classes and exercises where you will acquire, practise and develop the necessary technical, practical and interpretative performance skills to help you succeed when performing live to an audience. You will consider the nature, skills and attributes of the performer’s role in your chosen discipline.
