Course summary

This International Foundation programme provides an intensive year of dance study alongside the opportunity to improve your English language skills. Key Features

  • On this programme you will develop your technical and creative skills by studying contemporary dance, classical ballet, body awareness, dance creation and contextual studies.
  • Projects led by professional artists in a range of genres and styles enable you to devise, rehearse and perform your work.
  • Students on the International Foundation Year will undertake intensive English language tuition, both in general English language and applying this in dance contexts, using dance-specific terminology. Your English language studies will include developing language skills to enable you to analyse and talk about dance and dance performance you have seen.

Students who select the 4-year BA (Hons) Contemporary Dance with International Foundation Year programme and pass all modules, will automatically progress to year 1 of the BA (Hons) Contemporary Dance programme at Trinity Laban. The International Foundation Year: Contemporary Dance & English can also be selected as a stand-alone 1-year programme for students who wish to explore their dance practice at a conservatoire in London whilst improving their English language skills.
