Performance Studies CamTec
The CamTec in Performing Arts is designed for those students who want to explore the performance industry in more depth, in terms of the work available, how to network, audition and survive in this most competitive of industries. Students will explore freelance and contract based work, as well as preparing for projects and performances. There is practical work involved, in terms of workshop based classes to help refine your skills. This is a particularly useful course for those wanting to explore the varied roles within the industry, not simply performance.

Student Case Studies:
“I enjoy all three of the art forms covered by Performing Arts so teachers advised me this would be a wise option. I’ve really enjoyed it – the subject matter is interesting, the lessons are fun and it has really furthered my abilities.”
Charlie is planning to study Performing Arts further at university.
