Top up


This course is designed for students who have previously taken higher education or full-time performance courses and require a final ‘top-up’ course to launch them into a professional performance career. Whilst maintaining core technical classes including ballet, jazz and contemporary, emphasis will focus heavily on preparation for the professional environment.


Diverse performance opportunities


Greater performance opportunities will be experienced, ranging from solo performance platforms in students’ chosen genre, to repertory workshops with company professionals specialising in street theatre, physical theatre and emerging theatre. There will be opportunities to develop workshops through contextual based projects in Theatre In Education (TIE) and TTC outreach programmes.


Industry input


Independent innovative projects are created by students in genres as diverse as sight specific choreography and musical theatre productions. Each project is guided and mentored by an industry professional.


Unique skills


Master classes in set design and technical theatre give a brief insight into the other side of professional theatre whilst additional workshops and after-hour short courses in other skills such as fencing, costume design and circus skills, provide students with expertise in specialist areas. TTC is fortunate to be a small college with flexible timetables which can reflect students’ interests and current developments in the industry.
