If you have musical talents, or enjoy being on stage or back stage then our courses are the ideal choice for you! Courses are taught in the country’s only Live Nation Centre for Media and Performing Arts, supported by the world’s biggest live event company, giving our students fantastic access to the creative industry as a result.
Students get to go backstage at a range of external events, such as the O2 British Music Experience and Download Festival, as well as having the opportunity to produce, perform in or build the set for a range of live performances. Recent end of year performances have included Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar and Joseph.
Our dance programmes are supported by Steelworks Dance and Frontline Dance, providing facilities and experts from the commercial dance world.
Students have progressed to a variety of successful careers, including Rachel Shenton (Hollyoaks) who regularly returns to the College to provide workshops and support to students.
