How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Dance course?

Creative

You have creativity flowing through your veins. While many other loved science or even math, you love any medium that allowed you to express yourself creatively, whether it was writing, singing, or dancing.

Confident

Dancing in your room when the only audience is your pet cat is easy. To make it as a dancer, whether your choreographing or participating, you’ll need to radiate confidence, which will translate to the people around you.

Determined

You have to be willing to put in hours on end practicing in front of a mirror, to perfect any routine you may want to perform. The dance community is a notably difficult scene to break into, and thus, nothing but 100% will do. You’ll need to shed blood (from the inevitable blister you’ll get on your feet) and tears (from when you miss a step at some point) to get to where you want to be.
