Do you have a passion for dance and want to study in a non-competitive environment? This course offers a unique approach to dance training; embedding four intertwining strands of study that focus on you receiving a fully-rounded education to equip you to work as a Professional Dance Artist. The course specialises in Dance in Education and a large proportion of your studies will be spent on live teaching projects, delivering dance in primary and secondary schools, shadowing community dance practitioners and setting up your own community based dance projects.
You will also train in contemporary dance technique alongside an in-depth exploration into creative practice, making your own work as well as performing for professional choreographers. All our work here is underpinned by a somatic movement approach which gives you a strong foundation in bodily awareness and reflective practice to help you find the kind of dance artist you want to be.
Our key aim is helping you prepare for a professional career in the dance profession and there are very strong links to employment on this programme. The course gives you a clear pathway to either employment in the field or further study, with live briefs, assessment rooted in practice and a strong connection to the profession, ensuring your employability.
Year 1: Studio Practice, Composition and Performance, Facilitation and Performance
Year 2: Studio Practice, Dance In Education, Body and Other (Composition and Performance)
