2 welcome Contents Welcome Welcome to Bridgwater College s Performing Arts brochure where you will find information about our really exciting range of Music and Performing Arts opportunities. No matter which course or subjects you are studying, there are brilliant activities to enhance your time at the College. Our Academy Programme gives you the opportunity to work with like-minded students and our highly talented and enthusiastic Academy Directors. You will learn a wide range of skills by becoming involved, not just by rehearsing and performing, but also gaining experience that you can transfer to all parts of your life, such as working as part of a team, planning, presentation and confidence. This is really valuable, especially when you come to write CVs and make applications for jobs or other courses. The Performing Arts Academy has four specialisms the Dance Company, Drama Academy, Show Choir and Rock Academy. You can find out more about each of these in this booklet. In addition to the Academies we also run a wide range of enrichment groups including our award-winning College Choir, instrumental ensembles and vocal groups that are open to students across the College, as well as our fantastic Music Room for expert one-to-one tuition.

The Drama Academy is a great opportunity for you to hone your skills, develop your confidence and helps you if you are thinking of pursuing a creative career.

He is the founder of theatre in-education company Shakespeare s Children. Freya Cooper Student I have had so many great experiences in the Academy, especially performing in A Midsummer Night s Dream and being able to share a year s worth of hard work with the audience. I love the rehearsals as you can see everything coming together. Everyone is made to feel like a professional from day one, and you can always go to Daniel for advice on how to improve. 5 4

Miranda Staples Student I love the challenges that come with D14 Dance Company such as the fast choreography and new pieces.

5 ROCK Rock Academy The Rock Academy line ups have previously included guitars, drums, basses, keyboard, brass and vocals. The groups have now experienced many tours throughout the South of the UK on a professional double decker tour bus, and have entered many local and national band competitions, which are great for experience and exposure. Our students play a wide variety of styles of rock and pop music, the only stipulation being that it must suit a public performance, and with the ultimate goal of producing a solid, professional performance every time. Luke Allen Director Jack Tottle Student Special Features: Perform in many public rock gigs Learn from experienced musicians and mentors Tour and compete in rock competitions at a national level Work with other motivated talented musicians Increase your knowledge of repertoire and performance style. Luke performs classical, jazz, modern rock and popular music on saxophone, clarinet, piano and keyboard, as well as conducting and musically directing a wide variety of ensembles.

Luke is also Programme Manager for Music at Bridgwater College. Being in the Rock Academy allows you to do everything from rehearsals to gigs to playing instruments - there are instruments available for any genre giving you total freedom. It really opens your eyes to the music world and performing as a band. There s nothing better than performing a song that you ve been working on for weeks. 9 8
