You will also prepare and develop solo material for auditions for progression to stage schools and universities.

You will learn and develop dance skills and techniques across a number of genres,including jazz, contemporary, musical theatre and urban dance styles through workshops and performances. You will learn and develop singing skills and techniques through both ensemble and solo work in vocal workshops and performance opportunities. Some technical theatre training is included through performance projects for those interested in scenic design, lighting and sound.

  • We offer fantastic facilities with an in-house theatre, recording studio and dance studio.
  • Regular trips to professional productions both locally and in London’s West End.

You can progress on to Performing Arts Level 3.

This course can lead to employment within the performing arts industry as an actor, dancer, singer or a combination of all three as a musical theatre (triple threat) performer in regional, national and international theatre, TV, film and entertainment teams.

Other employment areas of the industry could include performance production, directing, arts administration, choreography, teaching, arts administration and a host of other related jobs

"Working with the students from East Coast College is a real delight, because not only do they benefit from the invaluable experience of performing in a real live working theatre, our audiences genuinely love coming out to support our local young performers and we always look forward to welcoming them back."
