DANCE BTEC in Sheffield

From September 2024 Hype Dance, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH VLUK, will be offering a fully funded Level 3 BTEC dance course.

If you are aged 16-18, come and study with us in Sheffield, part-time for 2 years, and learn from our highly skilled and experienced College faculty.

If you have an interest in dance and performance and want to develop these skills in a fully inclusive, inspiring and welcoming environment – WE WANT TO TRAIN YOU!

After 20 years in Sheffield this is certainly the right time to launch a new chapter! I’ve designed the course to really equip everyone with the most relevant, real world dance knowledge, helping them to develop their own confidence and expression. I really cannot wait to welcome the first students.
