Arts officers, producers and directors assume creative, financial and organisational responsibilities in the production and direction of television and radio programmes, films, stage presentations, content for other media, and the promotion and exhibition of other creative activities.
Dancers and choreographers devise, direct, rehearse and perform classical and contemporary dance routines.
Musicians write, arrange, orchestrate, conduct and perform musical compositions.
Product, clothing and related designers plan, direct and undertake the creation of designs for new industrial and commercial products, clothing and related fashion accessories, costumes and wigs, and for building interiors and stage sets.
I've always wanted to go into performing arts. The atmosphere at Cornwall College was so much more welcoming than other colleges I applied to and everyone's really friendly here. When I finish my Extended Diploma in Performing Arts I want to go to acting school in London and eventually work as an actress.
I heard how good the dance course was from current and previous students, and attended a taster day at the College and saw how good it was for myself. The dance studios are reat and the tutors offer good constructive criticism and praise. I am really happy that I decided to study dance at Cornwall College.
