Study Dance Degrees

If you wish to develop your practical and theoretical skills within dance, a degree will provide you with a nurturing environment in which you can achieve this. You will advance in your dance specific skills, but also in confidence and knowledge of the creative arts sector. Your degree will prepare you for a range of careers, from dancing professionally to teaching dance classes in schools and privately.

An undergraduate degree in dance will give you a foundation of knowledge in the subject area. You will have opportunities to develop your artistry, creating a unique and personal dance portfolio. You might study modules on dance forms, dance techniques, dance teaching and community dance teaching.

Your degree will be delivered through a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as dance studio sessions and technique classes. You will be able to develop your practice of a range of dances, and how they are used in different performing arts.
