Why choose this course
We were the first university to set up an academic dance department over 30 years ago. Since then, we have continued to build on our reputation as an internationally-leading centre for dance practice and research.

Our unique BA Dance course gives you the opportunity to experience diverse dance practices and to interrogate dance in a contemporary globalised culture.

Surrey is ranked in the top five for drama and dance in the UK by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.

What you will study
On our rich BA Dance course, you‘ll train in a broad range of contemporary dance practices and gain exciting insight into dance histories and contexts. We offer a fully-integrated course and welcome differently-abled bodies.

You’ll gain the vital skills needed for a professional career in dance, benefitting from being part of the dynamic dance community at the Guildford School of Acting (GSA).

In addition, our BA Dance students have the opportunity of taking extra-curricular technique classes with fellow GSA students and join the University dance squad.

We offer exposure to different approaches, including release, African, south-east Asian, and ballet-based contemporary dance practices. You’ll have the opportunity to join our student-led dance company and work with a resident dance company.
