Please note that Combined Honours degrees at Liverpool Hope University are split 50/50. This means both subjects will be studied equally. Dance Dance can be described as a fluid art form. It is constantly changing, exposed to different cultural contexts, bodily histories and physical disciplines, as well as being influenced by political and social movements. This degree aims to explore dance as a living social practice and dynamic art form, considering how dance throughout both eastern and western cultures has been cultivated through traditional training practices as well as more contemporary cultural influences. Dance at Liverpool Hope looks at the bodies, techniques, performances and histories that make up dance practice today both from an embedded perspective - as a source for developing material - and from a reflective position, combining both theoretical and practical approaches to learning. The dance team are all professional practitioners and active researchers whose specialist skills map into the diverse areas of site-specific choreography, multicultural dance and somatic practice. During your studies, you will have the opportunity to work alongside professional visiting choreographers and dance artists, performing at our Capstone Theatre for public audiences as well as developing a consistent studio practice through one to one and group seminars and regular dance classes and workshops. Music You will have the opportunity to explore the performance and composition of music across a broad range of topics and genres such as popular, classical, jazz and electronic. Your studies will focus on music performance, composition and production – underpinned by historical and theoretical areas of enquiry led by staff with a broad range of teaching, professional and research specialisms. Our Music degree is part of our School of Creative & Performing Arts, based at our Creative Campus, and housed in the purpose-built Capstone building. The School is one of only a handful of All-Steinway Music Schools in the UK and, in addition to a Steinway Model D in the Capstone Theatre, we also have a number of sound-proofed bespoke music recording, rehearsal and practice spaces, as well as a number of musical instruments to cater across all musical genres. Liverpool is a UNESCO City of Music it boasts a diverse musical heritage, which underpins active and increasingly growing popular, classical, jazz, electronic and experimental music scenes. If you are passionate about music, Liverpool is an ideal city for you.
