The University of Chichester Dance Department has a well-established reputation for nurturing and developing creative graduates. With regular opportunities to perform in your own and others work to the public, and being able to see and work with professional choreographers and dancers through our performance programmes in The Showroom and The Studio Theatre spaces, the Dance Department provides a challenging, but rewarding opportunity for you to train and explore theory through practice. The Dance Education and Teaching programme is aimed at students who know that they want to share their passion for dance with others and teach in a variety of settings such as mainstream schools, youth dance companies, community classes or working with older adults. Developing the core principles of dance technique and choreography are essential to communicating and effectively demonstrating and enhancing creative skills, whilst developing your knowledge, skills and understanding of teaching dance. You will gain an understanding of dance history and consider the social and political factors that affect the arts, but importantly you will focus your studies on a variety of teaching settings and how to plan, deliver and facilitate student-led and community or school-based projects. You have the option to undertake the Industry Placement module in Year Two and may want to progress onto the PGCE Dance programme upon graduation or further master’s level Dance studies at Chichester. By completing this course we guarantee you an interview for the PGCE Dance programme subject to you gaining English and Maths GCSEs at grade C/4 or better.
