Based in Colchester, Essex just of the A12, this full time course offers all aspects of dance, singing & acting tuition. We have a full faculty of qualified, professional teachers who specialise in their chosen field eagerly waiting to pass on their expertise. Regular mock auditions will take place throughout the course to prepare for future auditions and guest teachers from various professional full time colleges will hold workshops giving the most up to date advice from the performing arts industry.

Evolution Foundation College is not attached or affiliated to any full time Performing Arts college; this allows us to provide an honest and unbiased opinion as to which establishments are best suited to the individual student.
You will receive daily Ballet classes, which will give you the core strength and sound technique required to back up all other dance classes. Jazz technique classes will further contribute to your secure and stable technical ability, giving you the confidence to pursue all other styles of dance knowing you will have the control within your body. Contemporary dance, tap, musical theatre and jazz classes will also be on the weekly timetable, constantly working towards all individual needs to create a secure and confident performer. Pilates classes are included as in important aid to body conditioning, injury prevention, for improving body awareness and refining dance technique. Lectures are also held covering topics such as make-up and skincare, health & nutrition and injury prevention.

**NEW** Weekly Cross-fit sessions are also included on the course timetable.

Weekly singing and acting group classes will help you work as part of a team, gaining confidence in delivering song and dialogue with clear diction and notation. Individual lessons in singing and acting will be taken weekly to work on your audition songs and monologues. Evolution Foundation College will ensure you have prepared a large repertoire in both subjects in order for you to be fully prepared for any audition requests.

During the year you will also receive master classes from visiting guest teachers from in and around the profession including choreographers, current west-end performers and college lecturers who will help guide and advise you on the latest trends from within the industry. Contextual work will be set to help support all the practical work from the course, which will help prepare you for the contextual work you may be set at a full time 3 year performing arts college. This aspect of the course will assist you in identifying your own personal goals, future aims and your strengths to be built on and weaknesses to be addressed.

Our aim is not just to do the job of preparing you for your auditions, but to also ensure you are ready to embark on life as a first year student who knows they are fully prepared both mentally and physically for life within a performing arts establishment.

8.30am to 5pm

I chose a foundation course as I knew I was not ready to go straight onto a three year course. Evolution did a lot for me in every area of the performing arts, from technique, control, confidence and performance. After my training at Evolution I feel like a completely different person and I am a much improved dancer. I am excited to say that with the help from Evolution, my family and friends I successfully auditioned at SceneII to follow my dreams of becoming a fully qualified dance teacher and a future ambition to have my own dance school.
