Why choose this course?
Kingston's dance degree offers a diverse and exciting curriculum, combining practice with theory. It covers:
urban, ethnic and popular dance styles (including hip hop, b-boy, house, Indian classical styles and Chinese martial arts)
The course capitalises on London's vibrant multicultural dance scene, enabling you to access well-known dance centres like Sadler's Wells, the South Bank Centre, the Barbican and the Place.
You will be taught by a team of leading industry professionals and academics. You'll also be exposed to real-life dance companies through guest workshops and in-house residencies from the likes of the BalletBoyz and Hofesh Shechter. You will have the opportunity to become involved with local dance platforms and organisations, such as DanceWest, Ignition Dance Festival, the Rose Theatre and Kingston's International Youth Arts Festival.
In Summer 2019, a flagship new dance facility will open in the new Town House, designed by award-winning Grafton Architects. It will feature three large dance studios, each equipped to professional standards with fully sprung floors, mirrors and barres.
The dance degree enhances your employability through a placement module in your third year, and a Production Project module in which you create a new production from concept to performance. Also, the Dance Teaching and Leading module develops your teaching skills and can support a teaching qualification.
