Robbie

BA (Hons) Dance Performance
“The Dance Performance course is a great way to widen your dance knowledge and improve your technical abilities. The course is demanding; physically and mentally but in your lessons you learn to channel your energy to make sure you can perform the same at the beginning and the end of each day. The teachers are really supportive and understand that everyone has different strengths. Before coming to Chichester I had never done ballet before; I was worried that I would struggle and not be able to keep up with everyone else but the teachers have really helped me and pushed me the right amount so that I feel more confident and comfortable in class.”
