FREE 3 Day Dance Summer School

Dear Dancer (Yr 10 or 11 completers)

We would like to invite you to our free 3 day dance summer school which begins on Monday 24th July 2017 @ 9:30 am.

We consider our summer schools to be a vital experience for all young dancers who are considering a career in dance. The kind of activities you can look forward to include an introduction to our Level 3 (after GCSE) Dance course, practical technique classes in Jazz, Urban, Contemporary and Ballet, creative workshops and a sharing of work on the final day. This will be an exciting, energetic experience which I am sure you will enjoy.

On the summer school you will have the opportunity to meet other dancers and the course team, become familiar with the resources and college as a whole as well as find out about how you can apply for one of our programmes.

If you have completed Yr 10, or Yr 11, the Summer Schools are also an opportunity for us to audition you for our Dance Courses prior to your undertaking your GCSE exams. This will ensure you receive good career advice and have plenty of time to consider your next step towards becoming a dancer, choreographer or dance teacher when you finish your GCSE’s. There will be a 30 minute discussion of this process for yourself and your parents (if they can attend) on Monday 24th July 9:30am.  An application form will be given out then and you will be auditioned as part of the summer school classes.

The summer school will run:

Monday 24th July:                          9:30am-4pm

Tuesday 25th  July:                        9:30am-4pm

Wednesday 26th July:                   9:30am-4pm

Please attend on Monday 24th July at 9:30am in the Performance Academy Foyer, Newcastle College NE4 7SA. You will be collected by a member of staff.

In order to take part in the Summer School you will be required to bring certain pieces of subject specialist equipment to all sessions.

Dance wear / loose comfortable clothing suitable for dance activities

  • Pen and paper for note taking
  • A packed lunch with plenty of water

If you are interested in joining the summer school, you can register by:

E-mailing with your details, specifying your name, age, your current school and the dance school you attend (if any). 

  •  If you have any other queries please do not hesitate to get in touch with me Mandy Rogerson via email (above) or Tel: 0191 226 7540.

We look forward to seeing you at the Summer School and sincerely hope you take up this opportunity.

Yours sincerely
