Course summary

Important Application Information Whilst UCAS Conservatoires indicates that the deadline is 31st January, please note we are able to accept applications after this date. Please submit via UCAS Conservatoires in the usual way. Programme Information Our three-year undergraduate programme prepares you for a career in contemporary dance by giving you the opportunity to develop the technical, creative and performance skills needed to become an individual and versatile dance artist. The programme will also help you gain the contextual understanding and the critical, analytical and reflective skills which will inform your artistic practice. Key Features:

  • Alongside daily classes in contemporary dance techniques and classical ballet, creative workshops will help you shape your artistic practice and develop your choreographic voice. You will have numerous opportunities to create your own choreography and perform in your own and others' dance works.
  • Reflecting on a range of creative processes and investigating movement and dance in its historical, social and cultural contexts will allow you to locate your own practice and to explore areas that interest you.
  • As you move through the programme, major performance projects enable you to work with leading dance practitioners (members of the Trinity Laban teaching faculty as well as visiting dance artists) to create and perform a wide range of dance works. The performance projects in the first and third years of the programme involve the creation of new dance works whilst second year students participate in the restaging of historically significant repertoire.
  • A substantial independent project is an important element in your third year and you can choose to undertake theoretical or practical research, leading to a written dissertation or the performance of a choreographed work.
  • A degree show at the end of the final year provides a public showcase for work by graduating students.
