BA (Hons) In Contemporary Dance
Open in September 2022
DEVELOP AS A DANCE ARTIST
This three-year degree course blends the study of dance practices, choreography, performance, contextual and professional studies, and dance science. A combination which develops you as a versatile artist with all the tools and skills for a prolific career in dance and the creative industries.
The course is fun and highly intensive, with studio-based classes, enhanced by a range of contextual studies that directly relate to the experience of performing, making, researching, and understanding dance. In addition, you will have access to unique performance and creative opportunities throughout the course.
The entire course is developed on principles of periodization. You will gain first-hand experience of this initiative, which aims to optimise performance, and physical and mental well-being in a dance context.
You will be taught by exceptional teachers (many of whom are also practicing artists) and international guest choreographers. You have the opportunity to work with creative industries leading organisations such as: Wimbledon School of Art, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, National Centre for Circus arts, Sadler’s Wells, Victoria & Albert Museum and Central St Martins.
Along with your fellow students, you will be recognised and treated as an individual with your own unique needs and progression journey and quickly become part of a community where dance makers are inspiring and learning from each other.
