Find out more about the TEF.

This Dance and Drama degree offers a thorough, broad-based education for creative artists of the future who can apply their knowledge and skills in the disciplines of dance, drama and theatre. The programme is designed to develop reflective and articulate practitioners equipped with the graduate skills which are sought after within the creative industries.

The combination of dance and drama offers a unique opportunity to explore dance styles from contemporary, ballet, popular (jazz, hip hop, capoeira) to social, folk and somatic practice, alongside specialist drama areas such as acting, directing, writing and applied theatre. You will possess artistic skills and vision which you will develop in professional theatre spaces, relating your practice to critical theories, dance and theatre histories and contemporary ideas. Optional modules are available in aerial performance, physical theatre, circus arts, theatre design and technical theatre.

If you are equally passionate about dance, drama and theatre and want to work at the cutting-edge of dance and theatre practice then this is the degree for you. You should have a desire to engage people in inclusive dance and drama experiences in a variety of applied and theatrical performance settings, and aspire to become an articulate practitioner who understands the key concepts that underpin both dance and drama in relation to culture.
