Course summary

This degree focuses on nurturing you as a creative and articulate dance practitioner, equipping you with a diverse range of industry-sought skills and performance experiences. In a supportive environment, you will balance your artistic and creative development with studying the theory and analysis of dance, providing you with an in-depth education and capacity for complex problem solving to prepare you to become a dance artist of the future. During the course you will explore a range of dance techniques that are essential to current contemporary practice, teaching, choreography, and interdisciplinary performance and have access to create and perform in our Arts Centre theatres, as well as workshopping with visiting professional companies and artists. The dance staff are professional practitioners and active researchers, who encourage a culture of performance, both within the course and through the extracurricular staff-led and student-led companies, providing you with opportunities to perform, network and gain insights into professional practice as you follow your passion and curiosity for dance.

Assessment method

Through practical and written work, including workshop performances and full productions, essays, portfolios and seminar presentations. All practical work in dance demands theoretical underpinning, so most modules will require either a piece of writing or an oral presentation. You will reflect on your learning in each assessment and summarise your development regularly. There are no formal written examinations as part of the current assessment methods for any Dance module on this degree, though one of the optional Language modules is part-assessed by written examinations, should you choose to learn a language as an integrated element of the programme.
