What can you expect from the course at Evolution Foundation College.
Firstly you will be trained by a professional team of people who make up the staff of Evolution Foundation College, all of whom have been specially trained and qualified in their field of expertise. These experts within their respective fields will guide you through your daily routine of classes focusing on each student’s individual needs.
You will receive daily Ballet classes, which will give you the core strength and sound technique required to back up all other dance classes. Jazz technique classes will further contribute to your secure and stable technical ability, giving you the confidence to pursue all other styles of dance knowing you will have the control within your body. Contemporary dance, tap, musical theatre and jazz classes will also be on the weekly timetable, constantly working towards all individual needs to create a secure and confident performer. Pilates classes are included as an important aid to body conditioning, injury prevention, for improving body awareness and refining dance technique. Cross-fit sessions are also included on the weekly timetable to help improve student stamina & fitness. Lectures are also held covering topics such as make-up and skincare, health & nutrition and injury prevention.
Weekly singing and acting group classes will help you work as part of a team, gaining confidence in delivering song and dialogue with clear diction and notation. Individual lessons in singing and acting will be taken weekly to work on your audition songs and monologues. Evolution Foundation College will ensure you have prepared a large repertoire in both subjects in order for you to be fully prepared for any audition requests.
During the year you will also receive master classes from visiting guest teachers from in and around the profession including choreographers, current west-end performers and college lecturers who will help guide and advise you on the latest trends from within the industry. Contextual work will be set to help support all the practical work from the course, which will help prepare you for the contextual work you may be set at a full time 3 year performing arts college. This aspect of the course will assist you in identifying your own personal goals, future aims and your strengths to be built on and weaknesses to be addressed.
Our aim is not just to do the job of preparing you for your auditions, but to also ensure you are ready to embark on life as a first year student who knows they are fully prepared both mentally and physically for life within a performing arts establishment.
Evolution Foundation College has its own specialist dance physiotherapist, recognised by all the major private health providers, who provides injury screening, injury prevention advice and, of course injury management.
