Open College Network

Freefall has designed and implemented its very own accreditation scheme through the Open College Network (OCN). Excellence in Ballet is a nationally recognised programme with three modules at both Entry and Level One. The scheme measures and celebrates the dancers learning in Ballet Technique, Dance Appreciation and Choreography and Performance Skills. On the way to developing a suite of qualifications that Freefallers can gain throughout their careers, the company is currently developing units on Dance Leadership and being a Healthy Dancer.

National Arts Award

Freefallers are also invited to take part in Arts Council England’s Arts Award – the national qualification which supports young people’s development as artists and arts leaders. Currently all Freefallers have achieved Arts Award Bronze.
