Ballroom and Latin Dance - Improvers Level 2
Develop your skills further through on adding variations and technique. Improvers Level 2 is aimed at those looking to improve their knowledge of dance. Ideal for learners who have completed the Improvers Level 1 or have equivalent experience.
? Learners who are unable to attend face to face sessions can still enrol onto the course and attend all sessions online.
Learners will also be able to access a wide range of College services including Moodle, Office 365 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, One Drive) and Microsoft Teams to support online learning. Induction sessions will be held prior to the start of the course, to allow learners to familiarise themselves with the online learning platforms.
“I chose to study through Newbury College because the course offered at Kingsclere PA is really specialised. There are a good number of contact hours per week with industry professionals, so the training is relevant and of a high level. The training and skills I’ve learnt have given me the confidence to be audition ready for degree courses.”
Improvers Level 2 is designed to expand your knowledge by learning new step variations to the well-known Ballroom and Latin dances previously studied at Improvers Level 1 or equivalent level. During the course the focus will be on developing technique, poise, style, musicality and improving dance performance. The course is flexible to suit the needs of the learners.
- Demonstrate continuity and flow of movement in Ballroom Dances
- Demonstrate growth in style and rhythm in the Latin Dances
- Demonstrate improved posture in partnering skills
You will need to bring the following to the first session: a bottle of water, loose comfortable clothing and preferably soft-bottom footwear. Please do not wear stilettos.
You will be asked to complete a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire before the first class. Failure to complete the questionnaire may result in the student not being able to participate in the class. If anyone wishes to see a copy of the questionnaire before enrolling, they may contact the Student Services team on 01635 845213 to request a copy.
You should have completed the Improvers Level 1 course before enrolling on this level, or have completed equivalent ballroom dance training.
This course does not lead to a formal qualification.
You can progress onto 'Ballroom and Latin Dance Intermediate'.
You will be assessed through tutor observation, an individual learning plan and tutor/peer feedback.
You do not need to be in relevant work to undertake this course.
