Grade 6 Contemporary Dance

<< Back to all enrichment

This enrichment is open to all dancers who wish to further their skills and training in core technique and Contemporary dance (you don’t not have to be studying dance as a subject to join this course), however strongly advised for students studying A Level and Btec Dance to compliment your studies

The syllabus includes warm up exercises, barre exercises, floor and standing exercises, set amalgamations, an examiner's dance, student choreography and a teachers dance with examinations taking place at Wyke with a visiting examiner from the National Association of Teachers of Dancing.


The National Association of Teachers of Dancing was the first awarding organisation to offer a graded syllabus that can provide you with UCAS points upon completing an exam. Over the course of the year, you will learn the set syllabus for the graded qualifications from NATD, which has been inspired by practitioners such as Graham, Cunningham and Limόn, and lessons will develop both your contemporary technique and choreography skills. At the end of the academic year, we will then enter you for an appropriate graded qualification of Grade 6, Inter-foundation or Intermediate.


Grade 6 (£50), Inter-foundation (£65), Intermediate (£70) with a £20 deposit at the beginning of the academic year.


Laura Bulless,

My experience at Wyke has been an overwhelming success. I thought that moving from a small school to a larger college would be a daunting experience yet it wasn’t at all. Everyone is so friendly and approachable. Flyers has provided me with so many useful skills and experiences which I will never forget.

The independence and opportunity to meet new people was why I chose to study my A Levels at the College. I enjoyed being able to complete an EPQ as it allowed me to research and write about a topic I found interesting.

I knew Wyke was the College I wanted to study at because I felt it had a much more mature and relaxed environment than other colleges. I knew I wanted to study Human, Social and Political Sciences at university and my teachers and Flyers mentor offered me additional support sessions to further develop my knowledge in these areas.

I was attracted to studying at Wyke because it offered me with many opportunities that would allow me to progress into Higher Education. Being a Flyer I have gained invaluable skills, experiences and support with my personal statement for university.
