The Music Academy offers our learners excellent extra-curricular activities. Both ‘Jazz’ and ‘Band’ academies take place each Wednesday afternoon. The diversity of our academies allows students to achieve their ambitions in whichever discipline they choose to follow.
The Music Academy provides a varied enrichment programme that supports ongoing musical development. Students have the chance to work within the college live recording studios as well as using state of the art software and technology. Students also have the opportunity to perform at Regional and National events tutored by industry professionals.
Every year we have talks and workshops as part of the Music Academy programme delivered by internationally renowned musicians as well as alumni of Coleg Sir Gâr.
The Dance Academy offers students the chance to become involved in a range of dance enrichment opportunities alongside their studies. The Dance Academy is a diverse contemporary dance style company for talented college dancers who have passion, creativity and imagination.
On a weekly basis dancers access technique classes, choreographic sessions and performance rehearsals.
Students enter via auditions at the start of each new performance opportunity, and casting is appropriate to the style of the piece. As part of the Dance Academy programme, students take part in various workshops with industry professionals such as Gwyn Emberton Dance and National Dance Company Wales, and have access to professional-standard rehearsal rooms, including the sprung-floor dance studio, mirrored wall, ballet barres, drama hall, Forge Fitness Suite and Forge Theatre.
The Academy has performed at Dance Art Festivals, college events and curtain raisers for National events.
The College Sir Gâr Choir takes pride in its rapidly expanding reputation within Carmarthenshire and further afield, and is frequently invited to perform at prestigious events. Directed by industry specialists, Choir meets every Wednesday afternoon and is open to students across the entire college from all levels and areas of study.
The repertoire consists predominately of contemporary musical theatre with a focus on close harmonies and high energy, physical performance through song.
If you would like to make new friends and develop new skills in a fun and creative environment, Choir may be the answer!
