Subject

Dance

Designed by professional dance practitioners, this degree combines training and performance with creative and academic workshops to help you develop the skills you need to become a versatile performer, choreographer or teacher. You will develop your technical skills and explore a range of dance techniques and styles, with continuous training in contemporary, ballet, jazz and urban. Working in a simulated dance company environment, you will learn from course tutors with extensive dance experience and engage with industry to grow your creative skills and leadership abilities. As a centre for regional dance, our students benefit from strong links with local and national companies and practitioners. You will be encouraged to take up placement and performance opportunities and will work within a simulated dance company environment. In your final year you will lead your own industry-based project, presenting your work across the region. On successful completion of this degree, you can progress to a Masters in dance, or a related subject.
