About Extended Diploma in Performing Arts at Cambridge School of Visual & Performing Arts

A 6 term course designed for students who have a passion for music, acting, dance or singing, but don't have the skills or experience necessary to apply directly onto our Music or Drama Foundation

This programme will develop your skills in the performing arts whilst allowing you to specialise in the area of your choice before progressing onto the Music Foundation or Drama Foundation upon successful completion. Regardless of whether you are following a music or drama pathway, you will have the opportunity to explore different elements of performance giving useful insight into any given speciality.

  • If you wish to train in music, this discipline requires technical, theoretical and historical study. The Extended Diploma will help you to focus on these areas whilst giving you access to greater improvisation and relaxation techniques. The physical work will positively impact your posture and breathing and the drama classes will encourage your expression, sensitivity and performance practice.
  • As a drama student, you will also benefit from the music classes improving the potential of your own singing voice as well as recording techniques and discussions on trends in the current music industry.

At the end the year upon successful completion you will be awarded the University of the Arts London Awarding Body Diploma in Production & Performing Arts, you can then progress onto either the Music Foundation or Drama Foundation at CSVPA to achieve the Extended Diploma.
