Performing Arts Courses

Performing Arts

London is the UK's Performing Arts hub, home to West End theatres, TV studios and more, all just a short tube ride away from our centres. Career areas include TV and film, radio and theatre in areas such as acting, dance, direction and choreography.

At CCCG you will be surrounded by performance, music, theatre and drama at every turn, with the world of the performing arts on your doorstep. Whatever role you choose, whether it be behind the scenes or centre stage, we will equip you with the skills and attributes to kick-start a career in this exciting industry.

You will benefit from being taught by teachers who have a wealth of knowledge and experience from working professionally in the field. We select plays, musicians and themes which draw on a wide range of international artists and practitioners to ensure the areas you study are dynamic, forward-thinking and representative of our society. You will work with and learn from practitioners and experienced professionals on our dynamic courses.

Many of our performing arts courses are accredited by UAL (University of the Arts London). We work collaboratively with UAL and other universities and colleges to ensure we develop and award the best possible specialist qualifications. Our courses are designed to develop your skills and equip you to progress to a specialist vocational school, or university or enter the profession as an actor, dancer or musical theatre performer.

You will need to be passionate and dedicated, resilient and hard-working. As well as developing your performance techniques, you will have the opportunity to develop skills through relevant work experience and be involved in several public performances, at our college theatre and external venues.

Hear from our panel of expert teachers, careers advisors, students and employers about the various career routes you can explore on completion of your course.

Thank a Teacher:

“Thank you for guiding and directing me and the rest of the Performing Arts class through the Guys and Dolls production. We would simply be lost and uncertain if it weren't for your constant, tireless efforts, and I hope you are very aware that your competence and knowledge throughout each lesson are never disregarded. Everyone in my class, including myself, is thoroughly pleased to have had you as their teacher.”
