In addition to continuous training in contemporary, ballet and jazz, urban and commercial techniques, you’ll be offered the unique opportunity to explore a variety of dance processes and movement styles to become a versatile performer. We have strong links established with dance companies and practitioners working regionally and nationally. As a result, there are a variety of opportunities and placements throughout the year for you to participate in, which mirror current industry practices and inform your Performance and Transferable Skills modules.
